When you add the MimioPad wireless tablet to your MimioTeach system, you and your students can collaborate on whiteboard lessons from up to 30 meters (100 feet) from the classroom computer.

Up to 50 MimioPad tablets can connect to one computer, so students can participate without leaving their seats.
