Vibe Board vs.

Promethean ActivPanel

Promethean ActivPanel, designed for traditional teaching, requires additional hardware like a Chromebox to integrate third-party apps, complicating IT management.
Vibe Board, powered by Chrome OS, seamlessly integrates with devices like Chromebooks and iPads. Its intuitive interface supports diverse learning modes—onsite, remote, and hybrid—making it a flexible, cost-effective choice for schools.

Whiteboard Experience
Turn teaching into an easy and interactive journey
Go beyond Promethean's dated on-site whiteboard design, Vibe Board keeps the most intuitive, pen-to-paper writing experience for educators and achieves even more. It automatically saves content to the cloud, facilitating easy sharing and offering extensive annotation capabilities across multiple file types, fostering dynamic and inclusive classroom activities. 
Educational Apps
Compatible with 200+ 3rd party apps with no extra cost
Unlike Promethean's limitation to browser-based apps, Vibe Board offers a more flexible user experience with its integration to all popular educational apps you're familiar with. For productivity, it integrates with major office suites like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. For educational fun, it offers seamless streaming from platforms like YouTube and Netflix.
Remote Teaching
Advance your school with smart learning environment
Without extra cost for remote teaching capabilities like Promethean, Vibe Board offers an exceptional remote teaching experience with free access to all conferencing apps. Broad device compatibility allows students to use their own devices to access the same Vibe whiteboard as the teacher, engaging with all teaching content in real time.
IT Management
Ease classroom technology management
Promethean's complex system burdens educators and IT staff with its difficult interface and demanding management. Conversely, the Vibe Board, powered by Chrome OS, offers easy compatibility with existing classroom devices like Chromebooks and iPads, and integrates seamlessly with major office suites like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. Its user-centric design and simplified fleet management enable teachers to focus on teaching, enhancing educational efficiency and significantly reducing IT strain.

Buyer FAQs

Is the Vibe board easy to use? Do you offer training?

We designed Vibe to be an intuitive, easy-to-use tool that everyone can use right away on their next project. Think of Vibe as an oversized digital tablet, offering a familiar and comfortable experience for users of all levels.

Vibe doesn’t require extra computers, projectors, or calibration. Not only is it easy to learn, it’s fun to use! We provide complimentary onboarding training sessions to get you started, and you can always check out what’s new on our video tutorials or on our knowledge base.

Can I import images, PowerPoint, and PDF files into the whiteboard?

Yes! Vibe supports all of these formats, depending on which cloud storage option you’re using.

How can remote students see their teachers' drawings on a Vibe Board?

There are a few ways to share the view of your Vibe Board remotely:

  • From the Vibe Board, join or host your video call (via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, etc.), then share your screen. Students will be able to see any content you share on the Vibe Board.

  • Share a link (edit or view only) of your Vibe Canvas with your students so they can view content and interact with you on the whiteboard in real-time.

    Note: with this option, students will only be able to view content specifically in the Vibe Board app. Content shared from screencast or 3rd party apps will not be visible

  • If connecting in real-time isn’t an option, teachers can export their Vibe Board as a PDF and share the file with students after the class.

Can students interact with the whiteboard in real-time, even if they don’t have a Vibe Board?

Yes! Vibe is a cloud-based software that is accessible on any web browser or tablet. Vibe also has an app for iPad.

Sharing a board is easy with Vibe Canvas. Just send the link to your canvas via email or copy and paste it in a video conference chat to collaborate with others. Students can interact with you on the canvas in real-time once they have the link for access.

What education-related apps do you support?

Many popular educational apps are supported on Vibe, including Canvas, Google Classroom, Blackboard, and Flipgrid. We’re constantly updating our integration offerings, so be sure to check out our full list of supported apps (and feel free to send us suggestions).

Pro Tip: Feeling tech-savvy? You can also enable the Google Play Store on your Vibe Board to try out additional third-party apps.

Does Vibe Board require a projector?
A projector is not needed for the board. However, if you want to mirror your Vibe Board to a larger device or screen (e.g., for an auditorium or large conference room setting), Vibe Boards can be connected to larger monitors and projectors via the HDMI Out port.
