This paper describes the problems that teachers and students faced when they interact with atraditional whiteboard at Umea University where most of the classrooms have one to four differentsizes of whiteboards. In addition, the paper also shows the mechanisms that teachers and studentsuse to capture the whiteboard content. In order to gather the data I conducted a pilot study viausing quantitative approach and after some reasons and modifications, an empirical study wasconducted via using qualitative approach. The results show that participants use the whiteboardwith combination by digital materials and devices in order to accomplish their educational taskswere technology used more than the traditional ways of learning. Also the results shows thatteachers and students face many different problems each time they use the traditional whiteboardsuch as erasing the board, marker pen problems, not enough space, capturing whiteboard content,etc. After defining the problems I propose a suggestion of a solution for the problems by usingElectronic Board (EBoard) technology where it helps the teachers and students to engage thelearning process. EBoard is a device which mimics the regular whiteboard, however morefunctional and with wider range of applications i.e. capture EBoard content (videos, images,Internet connection etc.).
