A whiteboard (also known as a marker board, dry-erase board, dry-wipe board, or pen-board) is a glossy, generally white surface where nonpermanent marks can be made (an evolved version of the blackboard). Whiteboards are similar to blackboards, except they have a smoother surface that allows for faster marking and erasing.

Whiteboards were popular in many offices, meeting rooms, school classrooms, and other work settings in the mid-1990s, and they have become a fixture in many workplaces, meeting rooms, school classrooms, and other work locations.

The word “whiteboard” is often used metaphorically to describe aspects of computer software that resemble whiteboards. Individuals can write or draw on a simulated canvas using such “virtual tech whiteboards.” Many virtual conferences, collaboration, and instant messaging programs include this functionality. Interactive whiteboards are sometimes referred to as whiteboards.

The creation of the whiteboard is ascribed to two persons. The first is Martin Heit, a Korean War veteran, and photographer, and the second is Albert Stallion, an enameled steel production business (Alliance) employee.

In 1966, a door sign for Magiboards’ headquarters at The Cut in Waterloo, London, was erected. Enamel-coated steel whiteboards were first commercially accessible in the early 1960s, but it took another 30 years to become extensively used. Even after erasing the board, early whiteboards required wiping with a wet cloth, and markers tended to leave traces. In 1975, dry-erase markers for whiteboards were created.


In the early 1990s, businesses began to use whiteboards more often. During the 1990s, they became more prevalent in classrooms because of worries about dust allergies in youngsters and the possibility for chalkdust to damage computers. Around 21% of American schools had switched from chalkboards to whiteboards by the late 1990s.

The original whiteboards were made of enameled steel and were quite costly. Laminated chipboard, high-pressure laminates, and steel boards with a matte-finished or glossy white, generally polyester or acrylic, covering were then created. Enameled whiteboards, sometimes known as porcelain whiteboards, and occasionally glass whiteboards have the benefit of being erasable, whereas other materials tend to discolor with time.

Porcelain boards are regarded preferable in more demanding situations with higher use, such as educational facilities, where enameled boards are more expensive and less used.

Other forms of dry marker boards include rolled-up high gloss vinyl and coated paper, high-density two-part high gloss paints, glass and coated acrylics, and polypropylene magic whiteboards that attach to walls, windows, and doors via static electricity.

Around the mid-2000s, clear marker surfaces made of glass (matte or glossy) or specifically coated acrylic were available. They are often made of optically coated technical glass, such as that used in monitor screen filters.
