Remote, online learning is becoming increasingly popular. WILL™ SDK for ink and Wacom Ink SDK for documents add intuitive handwritten annotation and sketching to the digital classroom and remote learning experience.
Imagine a class where students and teachers can collaborate in real-time via an interactive teaching app. During a class, everyone can comment, add drawings and enter notes to the presentation in digital ink via a tablet and pen – and everyone can see who did what, thanks to a unique pen ID.
In this scenario, it becomes easier for teachers to track how students cope with particular tasks. Based on this information, they can provide tailored help to individual students, focusing precisely on the main problem areas. Alternatively, they can use an app powered by the Wacom Ink SDK for documents to easily digitize handwritten class tests. This makes scoring and collating results more efficient.
The whole system can also be integrated with eChalk or whiteboard software, enabling teachers to work from a board as well as a laptop. The work completed during the class could then, for example, be uploaded into the cloud. This makes the lesson material much easier for students to use and learn from, even if they are absent. All of this enables teachers to save time, personalize the learning experience, and improve the quality of their teaching. The result: more engaged students that achieve better academic results.
Distance learning via online courses is now a well established way for students to learn and achieve qualifications anywhere in the world, and at a pace that suits them. This makes it easier to combine studying with a full-time job, for example. Digital ink applications, powered by Wacom Ink SDKs, make the teaching and learning experience even more interactive.
Online education in particular is a growth area in the digital ink applications market. You can use WILL™ SDK for ink and Wacom Ink SDK for documents to build innovative apps that cover a wide range of educational needs, from annotation and form-filling, to interactive remote teaching and learning.
