Navigating the Whiteboard
The Whiteboard has a vast array of tools at your disposal. The diagram below provides a map of the various features:
Below are expanded explanations of each section of the Board.
Every time you create a Whiteboard, you can name it. When you schedule a session, then the Board is named according to the service linked to the session.
The Main Toolbar contains the most frequently used tools on the Board.
The Main Toolbar is your virtual command center for operating the board. Each button will empower you with a different way to make the most of your Board. Let's take a look at the different categories of buttons:
By pressing the A icon, you switch into Text Mode. This mode allows you to turn the Board into a basic word processor. Double click anywhere on the Board to begin writing.
By pressing the f(x) icon, you switch into Equation Mode. The Equation Mode is one of the most potent features of the Board.
Pressing the Arrow icon takes you into Arrow Mode, which allows
you to select objects on the board.
Laser Pointer Mode
Pressing the button with the single dot takes you into Laser Pointer mode. In this mode, you can click and hold on the board to display a floating dot of color. The default color is red, but you can change the color by selecting the Color button that will appear above the A Text Mode icon.
You can use the Laser Pointer Mode to highlight parts of the board for other users, either locally or remotely. Just like a real laser pointer, it's a good way to make sure everyone's looking at the same thing.
With the Grapher tool, you can create beautiful, instantaneous graphs of the equations you create in Equation Mode.
This tool allows you to take screen shots of your work on the Whiteboard. Click and drag to determine the size and scope of your image.
