This paper presents the design and implementation of a remote controlled vertically adjustable motorized white board for the purpose of teaching. The objective is to have a white marker board that can be adjusted to various height so as to aid maximum use of the board by different teachers of varying heights and to have maximum exposure of what is written on the board to a class with same level seat arrangement. Pro-engineering was used for the CAD drawing of the board and Proteus was used to simulate the circuit designed. Furthermore, this design employs the use of a solid white board, motorized jack, rollers and remote control to aid the vertical adjustment of the height of the Whiteboard. The wood used were seasoned and then cut into the various sizes, component by component. These components were assembled and integrated with the electric jack. Using Kiel vision (software for programming) the code for the remote and the receiver were written and tested. The circuit was then assembled on vero board, using Topwin programmer, the circuit was programmed. After the fabrication, unlike the mechanical solid white board which involves much human effort to push the board through a grooved frame and manually locking it with a bolt by the side for the comfort of the teacher, the Remote control Whiteboard has overcome the manual method of adjustment and aid maximum view in a classroom with same level seat arrangement.
