Many teachers are familiar with Skype or Google Hangouts for their video conferencing software. So a baby step before moving to a professional virtual classroom is to use our online whiteboard with your preferred video conferencing software.
- Open your current video/audio conferencing tool
- Open our online whiteboard in a tab in your web browser (we recommend Chrome or Firefox for the most reliable experience)
- Share the link with your student via your chat box or via email before the class
e.g. Hey Sally, I'd like to offer you a more professional service. We'll use Skype for video but we can practice together through the LearnCube online whiteboard. Can I ask you to open this link here [your whiteboard link]?
The student opens Skype (squeezes it to one side) and clicks the link to open the whiteboard.
