The interactive whiteboard uses touch detection for user input – e.g. scrolling, right mouse-click – in the same way normal PC input devices, such as a mouse or keyboard, detect input.

The interactive whiteboard typically comes with four pens, which use digital ink and replace traditional whiteboard markers.
