PDF and PPT file upload into AWW board

For the last few months, lots of teachers have asked us about possibility to upload PDF and PPT files into AWW whiteboard. Your suggestions and opinions matter to us, so we rolled up our sleeves and done some work. From now on you can upload your presentations and documents into the board and have a full teaching experience.

What Can PDF/PPT Upload Do For Your Classroom

This feature can transform your reading lessons. If you are an English, or foreign language teacher, this will probably be a game changer for your reading class preparation. Let your students circle out unknown words, phrases or synonyms, and make a group discussion.

Grammar classes can work like a dream! Just upload your PDF and every page of the document will show up in the separate page of the board. Let your students annotate transition words and passive forms with a touch of their fingers.

Make an interactive presentation combining PPT files and multiple pages on the board. Every slide of presentation will show up in the separate page of the board. Students can write their comments and annotate objects in the presentation without leaving their seats.

    When I try to write in text mode in a PDF the text doesn’t ‘attach’ to the PDF, it superimposes whereas if you write in pen mode the writing does associate with the PDF. Is this right, or is there a way to get the text to ‘attach’ to the PDF? This would be very helpful as you could type in instructions to students

      Hi Janet, thanks for reaching out. I’m not sure if I understand you. You say that the text doesn’t attach to the PDF. By attaching do you mean that the text doesn’t stick to the PDF when you move it? If you do, I’m not following you, because the pen doesn’t stick to the PDF either. Can you please explain a bit more?

      • janet cheney

        Hi Dorotea, the text doesn’t attach to the page so when you move to another page in the pdf the text box is still visible. I have however found another way to get around this now by using sticky notes which do attach to the page.

          Hi Janet, the new version of AWW is released today, so you shouldn’t have those problems any more. I’ll be happy to answer all your further questions.
