Whiteboard is an application that is free to use for all AUP Community members. It is a collaborative online whiteboard, and it can do so much more than a traditional one! It allows you to collaborate with students or colleagues on an shared smart board through any device. You can draw, sketch and attach sticky notes, type, add and manipulate images. You can even create a table very easily because Whiteboard recognizes the shapes you draw. Whiteboard may be used by faculty and students, of course, but also by AUP staff members to run efficient meetings, generate brainstorm and work together on a given project.
