Is there an interactive board that can be classified as being the best in the market? Or what are the criteria to qualify an interactive board as the best among others? Interactive board as the name implies should be fully interactive. There shouldn’t be limitations in how it should be used.
An interactive whiteboard, also known as a smartboard, is a display board in the form of a whiteboard that reacts to user input either directly or through other devices, It is mainly used for education, training and presentations which respond to the input from a user or other digital devices.
Interactive whiteboards digitise tasks and operations and can be used to share messages, present information and engage in collaborative brainstorming. It permits users to annotate documents, images and other content in real-time.
An interactive whiteboard will only function when a computer and projector are present. Then, whatever data or lesson notes on a user’s computer will be displayed on the interactive board screen. Note, there must be a network between the laptop, projector and the interactive board. Once the projector and interactive board are connected to the same laptop the user can control the entire computer system from the interactive board screen by touching it with a stylus pen or with fingers, rather than a mouse. The recent Interactive boards now accept both fingers and stylus pens.
Although some models of interactive boards can only work with a mechanical stylus pen which means, you can only use the board with its stylus pen otherwise it won’t work. The major problem you may have with this type of board is that when the stylus pen gets damaged or lost, the board becomes useless and your investment will be a waste.
I know this could be enough reason someone would not go for this type of board. Although, they are relatively cheaper compared to others with a capacitive touch screen. Price ranges from One hundred sixty thousand Naira but can be gotten cheaper when purchased a large quantity.
Another type of interactive board is a capacitive touch screen interactive board, you can use your finger to touch or write, or use a nonmechanical stylus pen to write on the board. With this type of stylus pen, no battery is required: You won't have to charge a capacitive stylus or change its battery periodically because it is nonmechanical.
Within the categories of capacitive touch screen interactive board, there are also differences in the touch sensor. Some brands can only accept one finger at a time(single users) while some accept 4fingers/users at a time. Recently, some brands accept up to 10-20 finger/users at the same time. The prices range from 260 thousand to 750 thousand.
These boards are similar in shape, size, and design. But the differences are in the manufacturers' software, resources, and material used in the productions. This also forms part of the price determinant. Another thing that determines price is brand equity. Some boards cost as high as a 1.6million per unit complete with projectors and installation accessories. But they all serve the same purposes.
Therefore, if you budgeting for buying a good brand of an interactive whiteboard, you should benchmark your price within two hundred and sixty thousand (#260,000) for a multitouch interactive board without a projector to seven hundred and fifty thousand per unit for an Interactive display board with a short-throw projector.

Lastly, when searching for the brand to buy, do your diligent search, some companies will offer one year warranty, some two years warranty while some do not offer a warranty at all. You need to ask such questions about how many users, type of technology (touch-sensitive) infrared or camera, warranty level, maintenance, training, and after-sales services.
