Teachers can use [[Classroom]] to host an online class. Classroom includes a digital whiteboard and a dashboard which open in separate browser tabs - we recommend using two screens to see both simultaneously. The whiteboard canvas tab is for presenting lesson materials, and the dashboard allows you to see each individual student and student groups, and manage the class.
 +
 
 +
This page serves as a quick start guide for teachers, if you are a student see [[Classroom for Students]], and for an in-depth look see [[Classroom]].

The '''main toolbar''' contains most of the key tools to create and import lessons. It appears on the right side of the screen by default but can be dragged to either side of the screen.

====Dashboard: your class overview====
 +
In a 'real' (physical) classroom the teacher can:
 +
* immediately see if any students have raised their hand and need help,
 +
* guage the engagement and attention level of the whole class and individual students,
 +
* assign students into groups and view group work side-by-side,
 +
* invite students to collaborate on the teacher's whiteboard,
 +
* have conversations with the whole class, a specific group, or individual students.
 +
 
 +
myViewBoard Classroom includes ways to do all of the above in a distance or hybrid learning scenario. This is achieved by the dashboard, which opens in a separate browser tab to the main (whiteboard canvas) tab.
 +
 
 +
<gallery widths="670" heights="260">

 +
</gallery>
 +
 
 +
====Huddles: for group work====
 +
Huddles are groups for students. Each huddle has a canvas, with a page that corresponds to each teacher page - so everytime the teacher adds or deletes a page from the teacher canvas, the same action will be taken for the corresponding page in the student huddles.
 +
 
 +
The teacher can set the number of huddles, from one to thirty, in the dashboard (above the teacher videofeed). Use the drop-down menu or simply type the number of huddles required, and then click the shuffle button to randomly distribute students evenly between huddles.
 +
 
 +
By default, students cannot edit the huddle canvas. The teacher can toggle editing privileges for individual students, huddles, or the entire class, by clicking the icon [[File:Classroom 3.0 edit forbidden.svg|25px|link=]] next to the student, huddle, or in the bottom centre of the dashboard (for the entire class).

 +
 
 +
 
 +
====Use your webcam and microphone====
 +
: First, click the streaming icon [[File:Classroom 3 teacher video audio streaming.svg|30px|link=]] at the bottom of the screen.
 +
: Click [[File:Classroom 3.0 video recorder.svg|30px|link=]] to begin sharing video from device camera/webcam. Click again to stop sharing video.
 +
:: Click [[File:Classroom 3.0 video recorder off.svg|30px|link=]] to reopen video sharing.
 +
: Click [[File:Classroom 3.0 teacher microphone.svg|30px|link=]] to begin sharing audio. Click again to stop.
 +
:: Click [[File:Classroom 3.0 teacher microphone off.svg|30px|link=]] to reopen audio sharing.
 +
 
 +
: Minimize or Maximize the screen with this button [[File:Classroom streaming maxminimize-2.svg|30px|link=]]
 +
: To end audio and video sharing, click the stop button [[File:Classroom streaming end.svg|30px|link=]]
 +
 
 +
 
 +
===Raise Hand: for student questions===
 +
Just like in a physical classroom, a student can ask for help by raising their hand. The teacher will be able to see students that have raised hands from the [[classroom dashboard|dashboard]], and can let them speak or choose to ignore it.
 +
 
 +
# Student clicks [[File:Classroom 3 student side Raise hand off.svg|100px|link=]] on their device.
 +
# The teacher can see who has raised their hand from the [[classroom dashboard|dashboard]] in the second browser tab.
 +
# ''The teacher can choose to ignore the student for now, enable speaking privileges for the student, or may use the chat function to speak with the student.''
 +

The teacher can enable individual students, huddles, or the entire class to speak using their device microphones. The students also always retain the option to mute themselves.
