Google Jamboard is an online Whiteboard tool that allows multiple users to simultaneously create and share ideas from multiple devices. Users can draw with a variety of brush sizes and colors on the whiteboard directly from any device at their fingertips, such as a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop, and photos can be added directly from Google Drive, Google Image Search, or directly uploaded from the device. Collaborative tools such as a laser pointer and sticky notes can be used for brainstorming and lecturing environments.
Do I need to own an official Jamboard device to use the Jamboard application?
No, Jamboard is designed to be used with all types of devices in mind and can be used with any standard desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Note however that some features such as text and shape recognition are exclusive to official Jamboard devices or the Jamboard mobile app.
Who can I invite?
Anyone with a Google account, including users with vcu.edu or mymail.vcu.edu addresses can create or join a Google Jamboard.
Can I add files such as Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides from Google Drive to my Jamboard?
Yes, but only from within the Jamboard mobile app.
