I was able to run a branding workshop remotely. It went smoothly and the team enjoyed the experience.

Excellent Online Whiteboard

08/12/2016

Simple and clear online whiteboard and free for up to 3 users. No experience with customer support so only 3 stars. Not loads of features but all you need for a basic whiteboard and the plus side is that it is very simple to use. Excellent planning tool - especially if participants are working in multiple locations as you can all collaborate at once in real time.

Real Board, real ideas

10/11/2016

Works just how my old sticky note covered whiteboard did. I utilize it with my teams when they are comfortable using it. Helps me visualize my craziness into simple drawings or ideas.

Awesome tool for teachers!!!

29/10/2016

I'm a middle school teacher. I use the boards in two fashions: 1) for student collaboration, and 2) for displaying class notes, videos, distributed materials, and board writing. In my school we have a SmartBoard (aka - DumbBoard). The DumbBoard software is slow to load and wastes too much time, so the RealTimeBoard became a solution. For student collaboration, I have and idea section and work product selection. Students can determine if the final work they upload is accessible to me or other members. They can share comments, photos, and general ideas. For classroom shared material, student can vote. I find it best to visually think of the processes and what you want the kids to create. Then create a template board. Finally, create your classes. The import of excel or google sheets lists make it incredibly easy to add student names to the boards. For my class notes, I typically create a line across the middle of the board. Below the line is the homework section, above the line is the classwork. I create a boxes with the daily objective (Students will... in order to...) and upload the materials (view only via google docs). I can insert youtube videos and other documents (even pdfs, Microsoft docs, pictures, web pictures and websites, and charts). I create a frame around each of the lessons so that when students are absent they may view the materials. When they come in and tell me they didn't go to the site, I hand them a computer so they can visit the site. Students who are absent, getting tutored outside of class, or parents wanting to see what it is we are doing can easily access the public board, which does NOT contain any student information.

Pros

-Free for Educators to use with students -Works extremely well with Google Suite, Microsoft 365 Business -Great alternative to SmartBoard -Pen feature is very smooth

Cons

-Takes some getting used to. -Can have a Prezzi, dizzying affect - Users need to be taught how to use

Stole my money!

01/10/2016

Paid for annual subscription and was locked out of all the work I did in the trial. They have no phone support and no kind of weekend or off hours support. Don't use them for important work, just something to play around with and walk away from when broke, which appears to happen frequently!!!

Pros

Appears to work, but administration is horrible

Cons

Paid for annual subscription and was locked out with a message to upgrade. They have NO PHONE SUPPORT nor weekend support of any kind.
