Can I have students write on the whiteboard?

Yes! You can do this by enabling participant annotations.

N.b., Some instructors have been disturbed by students annotating their slides during their lecture presentations. If you need to enable this feature for a class, please put it back the way you found it before signing out.

To enable students to write on a whiteboard:

  • First, open a whiteboard via the “Share Screen” button:

To enable student annotation:

  • Click on the “More” button;
  • Select “Allow participants to annotate”;
  • You may also want to “Show Names of Annotators” for better classroom management 🙂
