mobieInstruction’s Mobi mobile interactive whiteboard does more than a fixed interactive whiteboard for a fraction of the cost. Mobi is the first mobile interactive whiteboard designed to support student-centered active learning and give educators the mobility and flexibility to deliver engaging lessons from anywhere in the room. With Mobi there’s no need for a traditional interactive whiteboard.


WorkSpace™ software allows educators to write, draw, insert images, highlight, interact with, and annotate over instructional content projected onto any surface. Use WorkSpace and Mobi™ and deliver more engaging lessons from anywhere in the room, while students participate and collaborate. And the new WorkSpace v9.1 for Windows® and v6 for Mac®/Linux® include recognition tools that convert handwritten text, numbers, shapes, and equations into printed content, making them more readable for students.



Mobi™ lets you do so much more.

  • Project onto any surface, like a screen or wall, to create an interactive whiteboard experience.
  • Save, print, and email lessons and notes for review, students who were absent, or parents who want to see what their children are learning in class.
  • Draw from a rich gallery of digital images, simulations, and interactive lessons and resources built into Mobi’s Workspace™ software.


Use it the best way it works for you.

  • Use Mobi™ by itself as a stand-alone whiteboard.
  • Use up to 9 simultaneously to interact with and contribute to the same lesson, creating a powerful collaborative learning environment for lessons and activities, even if you do not have a traditional interactive whiteboard.
