The classroom details page are organized into the following sections:


The home tab provides an overview of what's current in the class. Use Announcements to communicate with your class in real-time. Since myViewBoard Classroom is integrated with Google Classroom, students can read your posts in Google Classroom.
Provide a lesson plan to accompany the lesson. The lesson plan should either provide an outline of the lesson, or instructions/guidelines on how the lesson should be taught. In case the lesson is shared, this greatly helps others who have decided to use your lesson in their own classrooms.
Create a lesson to present in this classroom. A lesson contains one or more chapters. Lessons can be shared with others. Likewise, you can also use and modify lessons shared by other users.
Use this tab to invite students. Add students to your class by either importing them from Google Classroom, or inviting them through email.
myViewBoard Classroom also allows you to create assignments to test your students' comprehension.
Upload files to use in the classroom. Uploaded files can be inserted into lessons.
