To activate the whiteboard you will need an empty “Content Share” Synclet, you should have one by default whenever you start a session. If you don’t have an empty content share space, open a new one and click on”Start Whiteboard”.
The whiteboard will show up, along with drawing tools at the top of the screen. Participants will only see the whiteboard and what others draw and write on it, but they won’t be able to see the drawing tools. Moderators will have full access. It should look like this:
After you and the rest of the moderators are done making changes to the whiteboard, you can save the drawings you make on the whiteboard as a .png image. Simply click on the “X” corner sign located on the Whiteboard tab. A pop-up message will show up asking you if you would like to save your changes. Please click on “Save”.
You can also open a PDF, MS Office file or an image and activate the whiteboard to draw on top of it. To do so, start by opening the desired file on a content share synclet using your media library. The Whiteboard button will be located at the lower right corner of the screen. Once you click on it, the drawing tools will show up at the top of the image or PDF file, just like they do when you start the whiteboard.
