Improve Your Online Meeting with FreeConference.com’s Online Whiteboard Feature
What is an online whiteboard?
Have you ever had trouble describing something to team members during a conference call? Sure, you can always hold a video call and use hand gestures to convey information, or use a combination of screen sharing and document sharing an image, document, or PDF, but sometimes that’s not enough.
The online whiteboard feature is available for free.
FreeConference.com’s whiteboard feature takes collaboration to the next level with an integrated board chat that allows both you and your participants to draw, erase, and place shapes into a completely virtual notepad right in your online meeting room. It’s an immersive team collaboration tool perfect for project planning, and more.
The next time you need to describe something complex, just turn on the whiteboard feature and start drawing in real-time for all of your participants to see. Using a shape recognition algorithm, you can use different colors or shapes and line smoothing to denote different parts of what you are trying to describe during the conference call and even save your whiteboard for future reference.
Plus, you can use the select tool to drag and drop – pdf files and image files included. It truly is an infinite canvas!
How does the whiteboard work during a conference call?
From there, click on the DRAW button at the top of the screen. This will open up the shared whiteboard for your entire online meeting. You and your participants can now draw, create, and share ideas together like you never could on a conference call by using the buttons on the left-hand side.
Why use the whiteboard for your next online meeting?
FreeConference.com is all about giving users options. Even if you don’t plan to use the whiteboard feature, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that it is always available when you need it. If you ever talk about a subject on a conference call that would be better explained by drawing it, you have that option.
When you’re done, you can clear and close the whiteboard at any time if you find that it distracts your participants from what you’re trying to accomplish. Your whiteboard can also be saved as a PNG file and saved to your computer, or shared with participants. This way, you never have to struggle to remember what you or your participants illustrated on the whiteboard.
