Let’s first talk about Open Learning Format (.olf) – one of the most significant and recent developments that has taken place in myViewBoard software tools. Replacing .iwb, the commonly used yet outdated file format, .olf  bridges the gap between Whiteboard for Windows and Whiteboard for Android by providing the educators with the convenience of using the same file format on both the operating systems.

Continue to read to know more about the updates that we have introduced in the month of September. And undoubtedly, our amazing new features will make your teaching more efficient and productive!

Whiteboard for Windows

Open Learning Format Release

We are delighted to introduce our latest innovation – Open Learning Format, also known as .olf! This new file format offers all the users of our respective Whiteboards – Windows and Android – an easier way to save, load, and edit files. Our goal is to establish a common file format across all platforms, including other digital learning software.

Note: To ensure the better user experience, we are constantly observing the behavior of our new .olf filetype.  Hence, all teaching materials created on Whiteboards can still be saved as .vboard, and .iwb.
