The Human Turk Strikes Back

After finding no single whiteboard with all the features I wanted, I decided to write one of my own. It uses enyojs, tornado, and redis and has lots of nice features. It is released under GPLv2

This is the GitHub page: http://anandtrex.github.com/collabdraw

The demo resides here: http://collab.cloudapp.net

In short the features are:

  • Works on most tablets out of the box, interface designed for touch interfaces
  • Multiple rooms, pages for collaboration
  • Take quick snapshots of the board
  • Upload pdf and annotate on whiteboard
  • Support for SSL, and authentication
  • Fast, handles lots of users simultaneously

One of the goals of this project was to serve as an educational aid for online courses ‚ÄĒ similar to what is used on sites like coursera.org or udacity.com, except instead of¬†specialized¬†and expensive hardware and software, all one would need is a cheap tablet and a server running this.
