Realtime Board

Imagine having a vast whiteboard right in your web browser... Zooming out to see the broad picture and then zooming in to see the details... Collaborating and brainstorming with others on the same whiteboard in real time... Pulling in files from your Google Drive, or videos from Youtube... What about setting up frames so that you can present your whiteboard like a Prezi?

You can do all of this and more with Realtime Board! You can add your students as viewers so that they can explore your saved boards on their own. Or have your students set up their own boards to work together on a project. This is a great tool for both teachers and students.

Simply select "Push to students" and it will open the link on each student's web browser after a short delay.
