Draw on any webpage (pretty much) or on a background color of your choosing.
John Dalziel's insight:

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.

Doceri - The Interactive Whiteboard for iPad.

Doceri - The Interactive Whiteboard for iPad. | technologies |
Doceri is a scalable suite of products that allows a teacher or presenter to control a computer's desktop, to control audiovisual technology, and to annotate any presentation in real time with the Apple™ iPad™. Doceri is an intuitive interface that can replace interactive whiteboards and expensive AV touch panels.
John Dalziel's insight:

Doceri is a versatile app that lets practitioners, and/or learners, create, share, annotate and control presentations, and they can also record and share screen-casts.
At the time of curating this, the iPad version is free, and a Windows 8.1 version costs $4.99.
Trying to record voice narration while also recording or annotating a presentation can, for many, be challenging, and Doceri simplifies this process with a timeline-based editor that lets users capture a presentation first, then go back and add voice narration where appropriate. Users can also pause a recording as many times as they need.
Doceri also gives users many options for uploading or sharing screencasts; they can...
· share a screencast directly to YouTube or Facebook;
· send it privately as an e-mail attachment;
· save it to their camera roll;
· transfer it to their computer via iTunes;
· upload it to a LMS (learning management system) or Google Drive;
· incorporate it into iBooks Author; or
· import it into iMovie, Adobe Premiere or other video editing software.
