Daniel Martinez

Used to be quite limited but tried again recently and working excellently.

2017-11-17

Communication with colleagues. Fun activity for children.

Pros

Zoom and drag with large pages facilitates dynamic lessons excellently.

Cons

No emoticons, smiley faces etc. Useful for teaching young students. Can get slow when lots of writing on screen, difficult to move sections of text to include some in middle

Great Tutoring Tool

2018-04-05

Pros

The collaboration tool allows both parties to write/draw/etc real time.

Cons

There isn't too much negative I can say about this tool. It's simple, easy to understand, and powerful.

Great, but with a few glitches

2017-11-16

I've been using it to tutor students and I've had great feedback so far, especially when it works without glitches.

Pros

The system makes it easy because it allows users to drag and drop images directly onto the whiteboard.

Cons

Sometimes, there's a lag between the time images are posted and when the images actually appears. Also, what other users write or do on the whiteboard may not always appear unless they manually refresh the page.

AwwApp is great for digital note taking in the classroom, especially with ppt annotation. Awesome!

2017-11-29

digital note taking and collaborating tools for classroom use.

Pros

It provides expandable whiteboard space for students to take note and collaborate in problem solve.

Cons

It is somehow difficult for the students to write beautifully in penmanship and to highlight clean. The ppt image gets erase when student was simply erasing their writing marks.

2017-11-16

Pros

The students love that they can use different ways to get across their message. They love collaborating together in Aww App.

Cons

Should be a way to not let other students delete others work in the collaborative space.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your positive feedback, we really appreciate it.

We're building a new feature that will enable you to lock elements to the background. That will help you avoid erasing elements you don't want to be erased. The thing you can do right now is to choose in the manage participants section whether you want your students to draw or just watch. Hope this helps.

All best,

AWW is a simple-to-use web-based collaborative whiteboard space.

2017-11-17

A web-based collaborative space.

Pros

I find it helpful for collaborating with people outside of my company/organization because they don't have to have an account.

Cons

Some other competitors have templates so that you can quickly get an outline developed (like a timeline or another form of visual planning). Navigation in the board can be a little counter-intuitive at times. I believe it was intended to be used with touchscreens like tablets and "smart boards". I have a background in engineering and drafting so I naturally try to pan using the middle button, but doing so does nothing in the whiteboard. In order to pan, you either have to zoom in/out to get where you are going, or you have to click the hand in the top right and then you can move around.

Easy to use and good for online collaboration.

2017-11-17

Pros

It has just the right amount of features and tools to be simple to use and share with others easily.

Cons

I once had a stranger access and "vandalize" the board I was using with a student.

I have found it extremely useful for teaching students over the last 3 years.

2017-11-29

It is a lovely teaching tool. Far simpler to use than any other whiteboard available on the market.

Pros

Multi colored pens allow you to highlight messages you want to give easily.

Cons

Having said all this, it still remains my personal favorite as a teaching tool.

Hi Sukrit,

Thanks for your positive feedback- it means a lot to us.

You said you would like to have a scroll feature - and we do have one. It is a hand tool on the right side of the interface. You can scroll in every direction on the board so you can easily find drawings that are not in your screen area.

Hope this helps.

All best,
Dora

The app works well and as intended. It is fairly intuitive in design and use.

2018-01-03

Pros

It like the integration with google classroom and the collaboration feature.

Cons

When PDF's brought in they are not crisp and clear. The lines are very pixilated. The PDF needs to fill the entire page as well, I know that you can zoom in on it but this seems cumbersome and an unneeded extra step. The ability to bring in more than just PPT would be helpful especially for those using Google products. If it could connect directly with Drive would be an improvement. The last thing that would be helpful is the ability to record so that it can be used for a flipped classroom. The recording must synch the writing and audio at the same time. I have seen other apps that do not do this. I have been using notability and that has been my benchmark

Efficient

2017-11-17

Pros

I like that I can share it with my students. That way they can interact with me and share what they have to share. Its fun and entertaining too.

Cons

It doesn't connect to the shared party. They can't see what I'm drawing sometimes.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for your review - it means a lot to us.

I would like to know more about the issues you have experienced with syncing board content with the other party. Is the problem still happening? Do you have a link to the board I can share with my technical team so they check it out?

Divya Aalapati

it would have been better if there has been an option to type on the board instead or both

2017-11-17

Pros

The option to share and the counter party to write which is not in other boards.

Cons

I explained it in the first answer. But the scrolling part is not very comfortable. It sometimes is fine at my end but enlarged at the other end.

Hi Divya,

Thanks for your review, it means a lot to us.

I would like to know more about the things you didn't like. You said you would like to have a typing option. We do have a typing option on board. It is the tool with the letters Aa.
Also can you explain a bit more what did you mean by scrolling part? Did you mean moving on board or zooming in and out? Both moving and zooming on board is not synced with other board members. They can zoom and move their boards as they like, not affecting your board, and vice versa.

I would much appreciate your answers - they would help us build better AWW for you.

All best,

It's just wonderful. It's both tutor and student friendly and interactive. Easy to use and helpful.

2017-11-16

I use it daily to provide online maths tutoring to my students with utmost ease and satisfaction. It's very nice.

Pros

Changing size of the image has become easier and also overall control of the board include features like saving the board.

Cons

Eraser size cannot be changed. No underline options for text. At times the student writing is not simultaneously visible to the tutor.

Fun, intuitive; my students have an easy time mastering the whiteboard after one or two sessions.

2017-11-16

Pros

Doesn't overwhelm you with obscure, unnecessary tools or features.

Cons

The amount you can "zoom in" is a bit excessive; sometimes I accidentally zoom in too much and find myself lost in terms of my place on the board. However, this is merely a minor annoyance.

Aww was a good whiteboard, we needed something a little more malleable and robust

2017-11-17

I have recommended this product to individuals, but not yet organisations. I think it works well when there is already a relationship established between the two users.

Pros

The product was affordable with nice pricing structures (isntead of per minute etc which is the norm), It was easy to integrate and had lots of features we required

Cons

We struggled with the audio. It wasn't reliable enough when we had two users using it and because there was no camera we found users would struggle with the audio and give up. Furthermore it was difficult to customise.

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for you feedback - it means a lot to us,
We are aware of the issues we're still having with audio. It works fine on the majority of devices and browsers, but it doesn't work on Safari and iPads. However, we'll keep on striving to improve the overall quality of the product.

If you have any other suggestions or feedback, I'll be happy to hear it.

great teaching tool

2017-11-28

I was able to teach with ease without extra steps. I like that I can use any messenger or online classroom available and don't have to switch to use this app.

Pros

I tutor online and use this app a lot with all my students. 5love the ability to work together on the same board. Whether I explain something or my student solves a problem, we can always go and ask questions about different steps, we can mark what was unclear and it helps with discussion a lot.

Cons

It would help me if I could choose a graph paper background or had and ability use other math tools, such as typing formulas or use a protractor to measure angles.

I use this for tutoring and overall it works well.

2017-11-28

Pros

Easy to use and very accessible especially for students who do not have an ipad.

Cons

The abyss of a window can be difficult for my students to find where I am on the board. I wish there was an app on the ipad.
