We learned a lot about the Zoom Video Conferencing app last week. (You can click here to read those articles.)

Today I’m going to take a look at the White Board Feature. It allows you to type or draw on a large screen and share with everyone else in your video conference.

This tool is especially helpful for education. Let’s look at how to use it.

Begin your Zoom call.

Click on Share Screen at the bottom of the screen.

You can also draw freehand or make shapes.

There’s also the ability to add stickers, highlight information, and erase.
