Later this year, Microsoft will be releasing a new app in Windows Store named “Microsoft Whiteboard” for students and teachers. Microsoft Whiteboard is a new tool for teachers and students to create, discover, and share ideas together on the big screen.
- Write and draw naturally – Multiple people can write on Whiteboard at the same time with a digital pen or using their own fingers. Whiteboard is also designed for the big screen which means getting around feels natural on large, interactive whiteboards when connected with a Windows 10 PC.
- Bring doodles, sketches, and ideas to life – Handwriting and shape recognition is built-in which makes drawing basic shapes and angles a breeze.
- Create interactive lessons on the big screen – Whiteboard makes it easy to pull in web content, videos, and content from your own library and place them front and center helping keep students engaged.
- Share and collaborate in real time – Connect Whiteboard with a Collaboration space in OneNote Class Notebook to share content with a whole class and make changes together in real time from the devices you already use. Creating assignments is easy too. With a quick gesture, any text or content can be made into an assignment in Microsoft Classroom. Assignments flow into the learning management system (LMS) you already use when connected with School Data Sync. Students can also access assignments from Microsoft Classroom web and mobile apps.
