DSD: Use online whiteboards to encourage student interaction
Course Description:
Online whiteboards are a simple and creative way for students to participate and collaborate online. The session will explore the functionality of three online whiteboards; BB Collaborate whiteboard, Jamboard (Google) and Miro. https://miro.com/

You will have the opportunity to try out some activities using the online whiteboards and collaborate with other participants during the session.

Once you have booked on the course you will be able to access all of the online materials in our Digital Skills Development Moodle course.
