The BrainBoard

What Is It?

It’s a multi-user collaboration tool for use in virtual environments (like Open Simulator and soon Unity3D).

What Does It Do?

It allows users to simultaneously create & edit short text notes that appear on the board, much like sticky notes on a whiteboard.  Notes are organized & classified by changing their color, shape, size, and position.  With a few clicks, users can create a connection between multiple notes.  Switch on the vote mode, and enable participants to cast their vote for any notes.  Owners control who have access to the board by switching between Open Mode & Moderator mode.

Can I Save, Capture, or Import My Work?

Sure.  Export the contents of the board as a text outline to email or chat.  Pre-populate the board for an event or meeting with chat import.

With a subscription to the BrainStore, your BrainBoard gets a web-based hard drive.  Quickly save & retrieve entire board sessions.  Save your work in progress, then reload at a later time to continue work.  Save frequently referenced sessions as templates, ready to load whenever needed.  All note characteristics (size, shape, colors, text, connections, position) are saved, so your work looks exactly the way you left it.

    wow! that is quite a tool! heck it would be nice to have something like that in the real world!


  3. We are using the BrainBoard almost every week at our IMMERSION:tools.jam sessions, packed as it is, with functionality but also because it is so useful and handy for working with a group to record and guide the discussion. Thanks for your great work, Jeff!

    I love the BrainBoard and would like to use it in my virtual class. When will it be available and how can I purchase it. Excellent concept…I’m so excited to have found it. I also like your Attitudometer – I will use that as well.
