myViewBoard is optimized for distance learning, allowing educators to interact with their students even if they are not present in the same physical location.

Distance learning is any form of remote education where the student is not physically present for the lesson. With a variety of course types to choose from, there is a rise in flexible and affordable education options. In fact, there are a number of advantages of learning remotely over even traditional teaching models. To learn more, see the following resources:
