Grade levels: Primary, Intermediate, Middle, High

Whiteboard on the web is focused on real-time inking and collaboration. The web-based version of the application currently allows users to create and join boards, create and erase ink, and collaborate with others invited to the board.  It gives a true "real classroom" version of a face-to-face whiteboard where students can grab a marker and write on the board with classmates!  

There is also an opportunity for students to access many different templates and graphic organizers embedded on the board. 

For Professional/Non-student Use

Microsoft Whiteboard is also an option for collaboration within Microsoft Teams for remote meetings. Staff can select Microsoft Whiteboard from the share option within Microsoft Teams and begin working together and create an area within a meeting to brainstorm synchronously.
