Whiteboard video takes its name from physical whiteboard which is used to explain concepts and ideas, only that this is more fun.
The whiteboard video enjoys a celebrity status among explainer video formats because of its special expertise in communicating even the most complicated product, idea or concept in the most effective manner.
Its popularity lies in the simplicity of the video which uses only a hand, some sketching and drawing texts and figures to illustrate the concept narrated by the voiceover. Whiteboard video does away with all the fluff and restricts itself to representational figures which have only the outlines drawn, making it simple and easy to grasp.
Watching a whiteboard video is almost like seeing a video in the process of its making.
These videos are easy to conceptualize and execute but very effective because it literally takes the viewer with it by his hand as it explains the problem step by step.
