EDU FEATURES RELEASED FOR MICROSOFT WHITEBOARD

Microsoft Whiteboard is a whiteboard app that shines in quick brainstorming scenarios between a group of people. You can collaborate with others in your organization easily by sharing your whiteboard space with them. With Microsoft Whiteboard you can draw, add notes, add charts, write, type and collaborate in this digital canvas.

This tool is exceptionally useful in the Education field. Students and Teachers can collaborate easily with Microsoft Whiteboard. Below are some of the new features that were recently announced.

REACTIONS:

Reactions - with frame with zoom.gifThis feature gives students and teachers the ability to quickly “thumbs-up” stickies, images, and text on the Whiteboard from their Windows 10 or iOS device. They provide a low-stakes way for students to express opinions and participate, and they’re also great for taking quick votes and promoting peer feedback.

SEND TO TEAMS:

Post-To-Teams.pngSend to Teams encourages students and teachers to continue the conversation beyond the class period by allowing individual users to share boards they’ve created to a channel within Microsoft Teams. Sharing a board keeps it viewable and open to collaboration, providing students with a touchpoint for reviewing, catching up on missed discussions, and continuing to iterate and expand on the lesson.

READ-ONLY MODE:
