People from many different professions are finding that online whiteboards possess numerous advantages that make them beneficial to completing their tasks. The constant pursuit in today's world for faster and more comprehensive communication has put online whiteboards into widespread use. The ability of people in completely different locations to share and collaborate visually using an online whiteboard has proven to be a great advantage that, for many, is too simple and easy to be passed up.


Telecommuting has become commonplace in today's workplace. Online tools allow businesses to take advantage of talent from a much wider pool than was previously available. Many workers also find the flexibility of telecommuting to be much more to their liking. Online whiteboards are an essential tool in most business telecommuting. Their use allows the quick interchange of visualisation in a way that is intuitive and natural to workers in widely different fields.


For both online classes and as an out-of-classroom supplement to lectures, online whiteboards have given great advantage to educators at all levels. Whiteboards allow collaboration between students in a range of subjects from the humanities to the sciences. Educators also can use whiteboards to provide handy visualisations for students and to collaborate with students themselves on projects outside of class. One of the advantages of whiteboards is their adaptability to different tasks.


One of the greatest advantages of online whiteboards is their free-form nature. Basically just a blank space, the online whiteboard has proven to be a very adaptable tool for many situations. Uses for it have been found in online projects of an incredibly diverse sort. Aside from its uses in business and education it has also been used in significant ways by programmers and by groups of friends as a way of staying in touch.
