myViewBoard is an ecosystem for collaborative education and work. Create content with a digital whiteboard, present and attend online classes, and share content across devices. Use browser-based tools on myviewboard.com, or download dedicated apps.
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.
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.

These features are accessible from the top toolbar after signing in. Depending on the account type, some of the features such as Entity Management may not be accessible.
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.
Please note, myViewBoard Classroom is available for Premium and Entity accounts only.
Whiteboard for Windows
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.
