"BASCOM is excited to demonstrate its new Global Chalkboard Web Library at these prestigious events this fall and early next year," states Peter Cirasole, BASCOM's CEO/President. "In addition to showcasing the new release of this Web Library portal, BASCOM has also fortified its Global Chalkboard with many behind the scenes security enhancements. To prevent students from accessing top social Web sites such as YouTube and MySpace, the Global Chalkboard now delivers real-time proxy detection to stop access to anonymizer sites. We've also built into the Global Chalkboard "You-Tube Video Viewing" so that teachers can now easily let students access a select video (and not all content on youtube.com) by allowing a single URL."
About the Global ChalkboardBASCOM's Global Chalkboard is an innovative and flexible teaching tool that uses the Internet for learning. The Global Chalkboard provides immediate access to educational Web sites and builds Web-enriched lessons mapped to curriculum goals and state standards.
The Global Chalkboard is both flexible and easy to use. It offers a novice user immediate access to educational sites with the Web Library; it offers an intermediate user prepackaged, ready-to-use BASCOM lessons; and it offers an advanced user a method of building their own, web-based lessons using the Global Chalkboard's Lesson Creator.
