AWW keyboard shortcut

For the past few months, AWW team had worked hard on the market research trying to improve AWW and adapt it for the educational needs. We wanted to design online whiteboard for teachers with their help. So, we asked teachers how do they use AWW, what they feel about it and what are we still missing!

Online Whiteboard for Teachers is Getting Keyboard Shortcuts

One of the features that you repeatedly asked us for were keyboard shortcuts. So, we decided that shortcuts will be the first thing on our developer’s To Do list. Now, we can proudly announce that they are out!

Here is the list of  keyboard shortcuts you can use on our online whiteboard for teachers:

p = pencil
t = text
e = eraser
u = undo
1 – 5 = tool size
i = invite to board

Update:

  • space = pan
  • l = line
  • r = rectangle / filled rectangle
  • b = ellipse / filled ellipse
  • m = mark
  • d = PDF/PPT upload
  • h = highlighter
  • v = select (Hold CMD/Ctrl for temporary select)
  • n = notes
  • s = save board

Now you can draw on our online whiteboard without hassle. You can focus on what really matters – visualizing lectures and collaborating with your students.

Features For Teachers Series

This is only the first improvement in our series Features for Teachers.  In the next few weeks, we are adding some more teacher-oriented features in our paid plans. Keep following us and be the first to try them out!
