<section begin=intro />[[File:Whiteboard_full.svg|left|60px|link=]] Whiteboard (web-based) is a fully browser-based digital whiteboard that requires no software to be installed.
 
  
myViewBoard also offers more powerful versions of Whiteboard, available for [https://myviewboard.com/download/ download] on [[Whiteboard for Android|Android]] and [[Whiteboard for Windows|Windows]].

Digital Whiteboard is accessible online, but works best if used with the Chrome browser (or any other Chrome-based browser).

Currently, this can only be supported on Chrome.
  
 +
Digital Whiteboard does not support Internet Explorer. Users are recommended to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Edge to access Digital Whiteboard.
