Getting Started with myViewBoard

The myViewBoard ecosystem delivers a complete suite of tools that make content creation easy and intuitive. Teachers can quickly create lessons using familiar tools, allowing the presentation of content to focus on student needs. And because myViewBoard is based in the cloud, teachers can reach students whether they are in the classroom, at home, or in a quarantined location.

1. Create Digital Content

You probably already have content ready to go in a PowerPoint, on a website, or in a Google Doc. But how do you make use of these tools via distance learning – when students aren’t able to attend class? Enter myViewBoard, a digital whiteboard that helps you interact with your current content, AND brings in additional content you may not have thought possible.

myViewBoard helps build out content not only quickly, but efficiently. Learn more about some of myViewBoard’s easy-to-use tools below:

Windows Toggle Button

Allows you to interact with any content you’d like, and share that content with students from your device. Using the tools to annotate over a program on your computer or a website brings relevance to your lesson.

Screenshot Button

Captures annotations while using the overlay tools anywhere on your computer. Screenshot a specific area of content, or the entire screen, from the web or other applications. Screenshots are automatically added to your canvas.

Handwriting Recognition

Converts messy handwriting into more legible typed text. Whether creating titles, passages or building out site words, this tool creates a uniform look to your lessons.

Save to Cloud Drive

Allows you to save images or content directly into your cloud drive. Once content is in your cloud drive, you can now leverage the share settings in GSuite or Office 365 to share content with learners.

2. Capturing Lessons with Video

Video has become an integral component of the learning process. It brings content to life and gives subjective material a greater perspective. And because it helps teachers create more engaging lessons, video becomes that much more important for connecting with remote students via distance learning.

Screen Recorder

This is your go-to tool when you want to record the entire whiteboarding experience, including annotations and sound, for easy sharing of lessons. Whether storyboarding, concept building or digging into computational math concepts, the screen recorder also works with web browsers and other programs that are installed on the computer. An advantage to capturing your content is being able to save directly to your cloud drive as an MP4 file type. Again, once the video is saved to your GSuite or Office 365 account, you can use the built-in share settings to distribute the video to learners anywhere.

3. Organizing Digital Assignments

If you are new to Distance Learning or a digital environment, one of the biggest obstacles to overcome is getting content to the students and then collecting it for assessment. Usually an LMS (Learning Management System) is in place to help accomplish these goals such as Google Classroom, Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, and Schoology. Each have their own tools to help teachers create a distance learning environment that can be easily managed. If you do not have access to such a platform, there are other ways of being able to distribute content via share settings in GSuite and Office 365. Imagine one Google doc that is shared to multiple people. This document can grow over time. Each new line could be a link to another document, slide deck, or video that introduces the next concept.

Now that you know more about utilizing myViewBoard in the distance learning environment, we will have a look at how we can recreate more of those personalized interactions that we have in our actual classroom, such as holding live virtual classroom sessions or hosting office hours.

4. Classroom Interaction in Digital Learning

As educators, one of our biggest fears of digital learning is not being able to connect with our students in person. The myViewBoard ecosystem is a great solution to leverage with your favorite video conferencing tool. Below are some favorite myViewBoard features:

myViewBoard

Offers an online, collaborative platform that not only provides a live canvas for teachers to whiteboard and share images and videos, but it also enables feedback from students.
