==System Requirements==
 +
* We recommend using a Chromium-based browser, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.
 +
* An internet connection (to load the page and elements like image search).
  
Whiteboard is accessible online, but works best if used with the Chrome browser (or any other Chrome-based browser). Digital Whiteboard uses WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) API to achieve screen sharing across various platforms such as Chromebook, PC, and Mac.
 
 
Whiteboard does not support Internet Explorer. Users are recommended to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Edge to access Whiteboard.
