Abstract: Even though interactive whiteboards have been widely used in classrooms around the world, very little work explores its capabilities for collaborative activities. This paper describes a case study in which we explored how beginners in Electronics collaborate in order to build logic circuits with our software using an interactive whiteboard as a collaboration platform. Findings of this work point out that interactive whiteboards have demonstrated to be more suitable for collaborative activities than a conventional desktop PC, since they make it possible for students to take turns when interacting with the software. However, this does not always happen and the technology we explored raised issues involving single touch limitations and projection occlusion.
