What is the Adobe tool used to develop whiteboard story board videos. Similar to this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxW5FfuFyvc.

I have seen a product Sparkol's Videoscribe but 7 day trial is too limited to learn.

Is there any Adobe tool that performs the same functionality.

You basically need a tablet with a pen and a screen recording software.
Camtasia is the best known one ( http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html ).

Adobe has Captivate for this: http://www.adobe.com/products/captivate/features.html

Thank you for the update but I was looking for a Adobe Product that has the similar functionality of Sparkol's video scribe.

I have used Captivate which is more of creating training materials (similar to activa toool).

After Effects can do whiteboard, but that's way overkill. I used to draw stuff in Illustrator, then import it in AE and use generate stroke sequentially (or something like that).

Sparkol created a specialized software to simulate whiteboard. It's easy, fast, looks kind of fake, but it's on a class of it's own. Adobe did not see the market for this.

You linked to a video on how to do whiteboard animation without video scribe. If you have the skill and the patience, you can get better results drawing yourself instead of using pre-generated characters/drawings.

So, to answer your question: no, Adobe does not, to my knowledge, have a specialized software program to generate whiteboard animations.
That does not mean you cannot use Adobe products to create, by hand, your own animations. For ex create the animation with Illustrator and AE, record/clean the voiceover/music using Audition then use Premiere to sync the audio and video.
