Online Tutoring: Why is Whiteboard better than Video Conferencing software?

It’s been a long time since there has been this discussion going on over the internet and social media.  Of course, video conferencing software tools are a great medium for communication, but are they always effective when it comes to learning?

Risks of Video Conferencing Software tools

  • Most of the video conferencing Softwares is paid and customers have to download the software and install it on their computers.
  • Users need to actually download the software and be aware of software updates. In the worst case, your operating system might not even support the new update.
  • There are no playback or recording  facilities available in various video calling software making it difficult for students to recollect the lessons afterward
  • There are various privacy issues involved when it comes to using normal video calling software as your online tutoring medium.  People can add you unnecessarily to their contact list and compromise your personal details.
  • Advance Scheduling is not possible
  • There are no learning and geometric tools available like pencil, graph, eraser, etc which makes tutor-student interaction less fruitful.
