New multitouch collaborative software Snowflake 5.0.1 released

Skellefteå, Sweden/Palo Alto, USA – November 15th 2016 - NUITEQ®, a world leader in collaborative touchscreen software solutions, announced today the launch of version 5.0.1 of its software suites: Snowflake MultiTeach®, Snowflake Business and Snowflake Entertainment.

The Snowflake 5.0.1 improvements and additions are implemented based on user feedback. This new version of the collaborative software Snowflake aims to better respond to users needs.

In this 5.0.1 release, we enabled WebRTC in the Browser, in order to better support voice and video. You can now have a video and voice conversation directly in the Snowflake Browser, for example on the website www.appear.in.

We added a wide range of language translations to the Media app, Lessons, Browser and Whiteboard. Additionally, we fixed various minor UX/UI and interaction issues.

If you want to avoid that students can make changes to the content, for teachers we have created the Kiosk mode in Media.

The Kiosk Mode can be enabled in the Configurator application that comes pre-installed with Snowflake.

In Kiosk mode you can prevent students from:
