Revision as of 15:54, 16 September 2021


Icon Classroom.svg Classroom is an online and fully browser-based platform for delivering lessons. It is designed to be as easy as possible to learn, and to be similar to a traditional physical classroom. There is no software to install and students do not need to create an account. There is also built-in support for Google Classroom and cloud integration, to easily invite students and share lesson materials.

Classroom works in two browser tabs (windows) and while not necessary, it is recommended to use two screens. The first tab shows the digital whiteboard, or canvas. This is where lesson content is imported and edited. The second tab is a dashboard for viewing student information and the chat, group (huddle) work, whether the student is currently viewing the lesson, and whether students have requested speaking privileges to ask questions or share comments.

To get started for the first time, please check system requirements and how to create a myViewBoard account.

Whitelist domains

Whitelisting domains is typically handled by IT administrators.

Domain Description
*.myviewboard.com this is required for the web applications ecosystem to function
myviewboard.com this contains a sub-service ecosystem required to allow wildcard subdomains
*.myviewboard.cloud this is required for proper functioning of web service resources
myviewboardclips.com this allows proper functioning of myViewBoard Clips
*.visualstudio.com VisualStudio API is used to enhance user experience
*.pndsn.com Chat Room API

Asterisks * must be included where shown above.


Please ensure the following compulsory ports are whitelisted

  • Protocol : HTTPS/2 SSL
  • Port 443 for websocket connection

It is also strongly recommended to whitelist the following ports

  • UDP port 40000-65535
  • port 3478 (UDP and TCP listening)
  • port 5349 (TLS and DTLS listening port)
  • for STUN servers it is recommended port 19302 (UDP) is whitelisted
Auto timeout

If the Classroom browser tab is not used for 30 minutes, you (the teacher/session host) will be automatically signed out and the session ended. This includes ending the session for students too.

Please note that this auto-timeout is different to the myviewboard account timeout, which can be configured from the FollowMe settings on myViewBoard.com (requires sign-in).

Current limitations

There is a list of the current limitations that users may encounter when using Classroom.
The myViewBoard team is aware of these limitations and is working to resolve them.
If you notice an issue not listed here, please let us know via myViewBoard Support. This helps us to improve myViewBoard services.


General Limitations
1. On mobile devices, the session will terminate immediately if sent to the background, for example by switching apps.

  • For users currently in the session, they will be dropped.
  • The current session automatically ends for the host.

2. Importing files to Classroom sometimes has formatting issues. Here are known issues:

  • Tables with cell spacing
  • Page colors and page borders
  • Images/Fonts: effects, spacing, position
  • Audio, video, and PDF active elements
  • PPT: effects and animation
  • PDF: bookmarks, tags, comments

3. If text or other elements aren't displaying correctly, consider adjusting the browser zoom level and the system zoom level. On Windows devices, search for Scale and layout in settings, and adjust to 100% - this may help resolve display issues in Classroom.

4. Classroom currently supports up to 30 students per session.


Browser

  • Chrome: underlined text sometimes does not display properly.


Devices

  • iPad: When a teacher plays both a YouTube clip and a video call, students using iPads may only see the YouTube clip.
  • iPad: If a teacher first gives a student permission to talk, and then revokes that permission, students using an iPad may still be able to talk if they click the microphone pop-up after the teacher revokes permission. In other words, the talk permission from the teacher triggers the microphone pop-up on the student's iPad, which remains there until the student clicks Cancel or Allow. If the student clicks Allow after the teacher has already revoked speaking permission, the student can still speak to the class. The teacher can disable this by again enabling and then disabling the student's speaking rights.
  • iPad and Android tablets: The screen record feature is not supported on Android tablets and iPads.
  • iPad: mp4 files may not work, due to incompatibility with the browser.

Open Classroom

Classroom works directly from a suitable web browser, there is no need to download software. We recommend using Google Chrome or a Chromium browser such as Edge. Accessing Classroom is simple:


Digital whiteboard tools

For a printer-friendly overview of all Classroom icons and features, see Classroom Toolbar Icons.

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.

Students will be able to see the QR code during the Classroom session and scan the QR code to download the PDF file.


Tip: connecting cloud storage such as Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive to your myViewBoard account enables easy access to your files from any device you run Classroom on. It works with other myViewBoard apps like Whiteboard too, and allows easy sharing of lesson content. See Integrate with cloud services section on this page for more information.

Drag and drop media from the above into the current canvas or different huddles from the Huddle overview menu


Page management

Classroom 3 Page overview.svg
The current page number and total pages are displayed at the bottom centre of the screen.

  • Click Classroom 3.0 page arrow left.svg and Classroom 3.0 page arrow right.svg to navigate across the canvas pages. The current page number is displayed over the total number of pages.
  • Click the Classroom 3.0 Add page main screen.svg plus icon to add a new page.


Important note on how pages work in Classroom

Every page in the teacher canvas has a corresponding page in students' huddles. Adding and deleting pages of the teacher canvas will therefore add and delete corresponding pages for student huddles, and vice versa. For example, if the teacher adds five pages to her canvas, all huddles will automatically get 5 new pages too. If page three of five is deleted from one huddle, the corresponding third page is removed from the teacher and all huddle canvasses too. The same applies to reordering pages.


Similarly, when in huddle overview, using the left Classroom 3.0 page arrow left.svg and right Classroom 3.0 page arrow right.svg arrows at the bottom of the page will move between all pages simultaneously for the teacher and all huddles, allowing a quick overview of all classwork in one place.


Page overview

Click the page number to open an overview for all your pages.


  • Click Classroom 3.0 Icon duplicate.svg to copy (duplicate) the page.
  • Click Classroom 3.0 Apply to huddle icon.svg to duplicate the page and apply to one or all huddles.
  • Click Classroom 3.0 delete page icon circle red.svg to delete a page.
  • Click Classroom 3.0 page overview add page plus .svg to add a new page.
  • Click and drag to reorder pages. Note that reordering teacher pages will reorder pages for every huddle in the same way.


Teacher/Huddle overview

Classroom 3 Teacher icon page overview.svg

Clicking the Teacher icon (shown above, located in the bottom center of the Classroom screen) opens the Huddle overview. This is similar to the page overview, but allows you to change between viewing and editing the teacher canvas, or Huddle canvasses.

Use the arrow keys Classroom 3.0 page arrow left.svg Classroom 3.0 page arrow right.svg at the bottom of the screen to switch between pages for all teacher and huddles simultaneously, allowing a quick overview of all content at once.


Note: remember that if you have set the student view to "teacher canvas" in the Dashboard, students will also be viewing the same. This allows the teacher to share to the whole class content from a particular huddle at the same time.

Invite students

Students do not need to create a myViewBoard account to participate in lessons. They can also access Classroom directly from a web browser and do not need to download any software.


Classroom supports up to 30 students per session.


To invite students:

  1. The Classroom host can click their ID in the top right corner of the screen to display their unique QR code, session ID, and URL.
    • Students can scan the QR code with the Companion, or another QR code reader, and be redirected to join the Classroom session. This may be convenient if students are using mobile devices.
    • Students can go to the URL shared by the teacher, for example https://myviewboard.com/classroom/student?c=xxxxxx
  2. Next, the student enters their name and the session password (if a password has been set by the teacher), and can join the Classroom session.
