myViewBoard is an ecosystem promoting collaborative education and work. Users can create their own digital whiteboard, present and attend classes, and share content across devices and platforms.

Our ecosystem is designed to be accessible. Many of our applications can be run directly from a web browser, and participating in classes does not require students to create an account. However, to access the full suite of features such as Cloud Integration and settings that wirelessly follow the user across devices, it is necessary to create a free myViewBoard account. All data is encrypted and is not accessible by anyone other than the user - full details can be found here.


myViewBoard.com

myViewBoard is a visual learning platform from ViewSonic. myviewboard.com contains web apps, personalized settings, and links to download software.  

myViewBoard.com contains applications and services within the myViewBoard Visual Learning Platform, such as myViewBoard Classroom and Whiteboard. These applications can be run within a suitable browser, however myViewBoard also contains links to download dedicated Windows and Android apps.

You can also use myviewboard.com to interact with Classroom and Whiteboard sessions, using features such as Throw and screen sharing.

The standard account is free and includes Whiteboard, myViewBoard Originals, and more. However, some features such as user and device management tools (Entity Management and Manager) are only available for myViewBoard Entity. To review all the differences between the available myViewBoard tiers, see the Pricing.

Classroom

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.

Please note, myViewBoard Classroom is available for Premium and Entity accounts only.

Whiteboard for Windows is a digital whiteboard designed to run on the Windows operating system. Whiteboard features work best on large touchscreen displays, but Whiteboard also runs on non-interactive screens such as a laptop screen, with mouse clicks replacing the touch for interaction. Whiteboard works together with myViewBoard.com to allow screen-sharing, and personalize files and settings that can follow a user across devices. Whiteboard for Windows uses AES-256 encryption to protect data. myViewBoard Security outlines security features of the myViewBoard ecosystem, including Whiteboard.

All ViewSonic interactive ViewBoards run a modified version of Android OS (although they can also have a slot-in in Windows PC in addition), and come preinstalled with Whiteboard.
