Brea, California (March 14, 2023) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, has developed ViewSonic Originals, an online resource that offers an extensive collection of high-quality, pre-made educational materials designed exclusively for use with digital whiteboards. Currently, more than 5,000 files are free on the site. Originals will be integrated into the current myViewBoard subscription packages with different levels of pricing in late April.
The education industry has been transforming by embracing digitization. With this shift, teachers are faced with new challenges, particularly in developing and implementing content for a digital curriculum. To accommodate this digital revolution, ViewSonic has been launching a range of comprehensive education technology (EdTech) solutions, providing hardware, software, service, and content. Within this, the company is committed to helping teachers improve their teaching capabilities in an era where digital content is becoming increasingly important in education.
ViewSonic Originals is broken down into four categories: Original Content, Backgrounds, Graphics, and Online Games. In addition to an extensive library of teaching materials for all ages and subjects ranging from interactive modules to full lesson plans, the database features an extensive collection of backgrounds, images, and animations that are perfect for a range of topics and themes, allowing teachers to add safe, copyright-cleared media to their lessons.
This year, ViewSonic Originals also launched exclusive educational games, which can be dropped into a lesson or accessed through a web browser. These games have been designed specifically for digital classrooms, offering new opportunities for students to learn through play.
ViewSonic Originals makes planning and running lessons in digital classrooms easier by offering thousands of interactive media created for all age groups under K12, and teaching styles within a user-friendly database. The content spans nine comprehensive areas of study: math, arts and humanities, holidays, science, geography, health, reading and writing, sports, and STEAM. Among them, the first three are the most popular with users.
All content is purpose-built for digital whiteboards and has been created in the Open Learning Format (.olf)—an open standard file format that works across various devices and software. Additionally, the games on ViewBoard Originals can be embedded into .olf files as well. This open format removes issues around file conversion and compatibility, creating a more open and equitable educational ecosystem.
