Teaching remotely brings its own set of challenges, one of which is ensuring all students focus on the same section of the page as you, especially when they're using various devices and screen sizes.

Maybe you've tried an online "laser pointer" which makes your mouse visible to all participants so students can track your position.

But LearnCube's Pointer Tool goes a "leap" further.

When using the LearnCube Pointer tool, not only does a mouse click produce a red pulse to grab the student's attention, but it also auto-scrolls every participant to that exact point on the page, regardless of their device or screen size.

To use our Pointer Tool, just select it from the Tools Menu.

Then click on the point of the page where you want your students to focus.

You can watch the video below to understand how to use the pointer tool effectively.
