If you are a teacher, you’re probably using some sort of LMS system. LMS systems became prevalent these days, as they help teachers and administrative staff to manage their tasks more efficient. LMS platforms are effective and responsive way for educators to create, deliver and manage their content, as well as monitor and assess participation in their class. All that being said, we can all agree that learning management systems are life savers.
Drawing and Sketching inside LMS
Surely, most of you use your LMS as a central place for creating, storing and sharing your lessons, assignment and other instructions. Sharing assignments and quizzes with your students can make your classes more interactive and students more engaged.
Most LMS systems, like Canvas or Moodle, enable you to upload various file formats into your assignments and quizzes. You can upload videos, text files, images and sheets. But, what about whiteboard, a canvas where you can doodle along with your students? Did you ever, as a teacher, have a need to draw out a complex math formula or electric circuit and share your drawings with your students? Did you ever wanted to make a group assignment or discussion, for which a visual note taking tool would come as a perfect solution? Well, I suppose a lots of you have found yourself in a situation like that. No wonder why, because whiteboard is a flexible and simple tool that can be very useful in everyday teaching environment.
Yes, there are a number of whiteboard services and platforms specialized for educators. But they all require you to create an account, remember a password, learn how can you add your students to it etc. There are also plans that don’t allow you to add entire class in a free version, and you have to pay money for it. All that taken into account, it would be so much nicer to have a whiteboard inside your LMS. A System that you already have an account for, your students connected to it and all materials stored in.
