In 2022, BIBF made the decision to purchase 53 Clevertouch Interactive Displays with a mix of 75” and 86”. With demonstrations led by Clevertouch Business Development Manager, Ben Kimble, BIBF were impressed by the durability and interactivity of the screens, as well as the expert knowledge provided by Clevertouch partner Ashrafs.

Since its inception in 1981, BIBF has grown from training 450 applicants a year primarily within the banking industry, to 16,000 drawing participants from all sectors of the economy, and are proud to have qualified over 200,000 learners in the last 3 decades. BIBF have seen lessons transformed by the introduction of Clevertouch panels, with whiteboard and screen grabbing being the most used functions. Further training is planned to give a deeper look into other features available, such as our STEM activities and CleverLive alerts.

“BIBF Lecturers, Trainers, and Educators wanted to record their lessons and provide students with the most efficient software and materials on the market. Clevertouch’s Intelligent Interactive Panels were the ideal choice to match with high-performance Tracking Cameras.”

At BIBF, all lessons are hybrid, with lessons being recorded and shared online. Digital Transformation Expert Trainer, Noura Yassin Al Balushi states; “It helps me especially when I am teaching hybrid classes. When I’m teaching systems analysis and design, or database design, I need to draw a lot”. The features of Clevertouch give equality of learning to those students in-class or elsewhere. So far, Ben Kimble has carried out initial training sessions, with more planned in the future to utilize the more advanced features of Clevertouch. "

“ I live on the Clevertouch screen! I’m teaching code, so my lectures are about building stuff together. [Clevertouch allows] students to follow along.”
