This Chrome app enables users to draw on top of webpages using things such as a
● stylus,
● trackpad,
● mouse…etc.
It's particularly useful for annotating and illustrating content on a webpage.
NOTE: Whiteboard, at the time of posting this, is still in beta phase and as such several useful features are still in development stages. These include the ability to save your work in image file, add different shapes and lines to your annotations etc.
Currently, users can
● change the background settings of a webpage,
● change its colour and
● customize its opacity,
● add lines and
● draw using different colours,
● add and customize layers.
To start using Whiteboard...
● install the app onto Chrome,
● click on the icon of the app on the menu bar and select ‘Do it’.
A menu will be displayed on the leftside of the page that enable users to work on the background, line and layer settings.
To delete anything already drawn, on the webpage, just click erase or better click on the Whiteboard icon on the menu bar and select ‘Quit it’.
Well worth giveing it a try to see what you think of it.
Ideal for live on-line courses. MOOCs etc.

You don't have to change the way you teach, alter the curriculum, or jump through hoops to use technology.
The Answer Pad enables practitioners to simply ask questions, as they're teaching, and the learners reply just as they always do; the only difference is learners use their iPads or a browser.
Using iPads, with Pre-Created Templates - saves time so practitioners can focus on the content -
Practitioners can quickly change the templates for learners to submit responses; with one click!
As each student clicks "submit," their answers automatically begin to appear on the Practitioner's Dashboard so now, at quick glance, practitioners can privately assess their learner's understanding.
With The Answer Pad's free app, TapIt Free, their learners are able to answer questions using templates pushed out to their iPads.
To get started, you need to know two things.
Practitioners use The Answer Pad from their computer OR the Internet (Safari) on their iPads.
Learners use The Answer Pad from the TapIt Free app or a web browser.
