[[File:Whiteboard_full.svg|60px|link=]]  '''Whiteboard for Android''' is a digital whiteboard designed specifically to be used on Android devices. 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.

Whiteboard contains an infinite canvas and the ability to add more pages. There is the main toolbar, by default located at the bottom of the screen (it can be snapped to either the sides or bottom), and the floating toolbar, which can be freely dragged around.
  
On first run, the android app prompts the user to select the account type to activate.  
+
For basic digital whiteboarding, there is the pen, shapes, eraser, and text tools.
 +
For more advanced interactive media, use [[File:I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg|25px|link=]] '''''[[Magic Box]]'''''. From here you can import local or cloud files, add sticky notes, mathematical tools, search approved web images, use the device camera, view files shared to the whiteboard via [[Magic_Box_Throw]], and host Pop Quizzes.

The Whiteboard for Android working area is divided into the following areas:
+
====[[Wireless Presentation]] [[file:I-main-toolbar-casting.svg|40px|link=Wireless Presentation]] (available on some devices)====
 +
Certain ViewBoard models also support [[Wireless Presentation]], which allows screen sharing from the Whiteboard to other devices, and sharing other devices' screens to the Whiteboard (via myviewboard.com).
  
 +
Unfortunately, not all devices can support this feature.
 +
Workarounds:
 +
* Use [[myViewBoard Live]] to share the whiteboard screen to others - this is a separate app, but can share your screen while using Whiteboard.
 +
* To receive screens from other devices, use [[myViewBoard Display]]. This app is preloaded on most ViewBoards. The person sharing their screen does not need to download any software, just go to [https://www.myviewboard.com/display myviewboard.com/display].
 +
<br>
 +
''Note:'' Please make sure your myViewBoard account is Premium or Entity in order to have access to this feature.

====Embedded browser [[File:I-floating-toolbar-embeded-browser.svg|40px|link=Embed Browser]]====
MVB-ui-android-w-label.png|Whiteboard for Android working area, parts labeled
+
Whiteboard includes a built-in web browser. This can be used to access webpages just like any other browser.

====Canvas area====
 
  
Main area where users work in. By default, the background of the canvas area is blank. However, this can be customized via the following methods:
+
<div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed plus-toggle" style="width:auto; overflow:auto;border:solid 1px #white; padding:8px;">
* Click the Whiteboard background management menu to specify another solid color, or one of the predefined images as the background.
+
<div class="mw-collapsible-toggle" style="font-weight:bold;line-height:1.6;float:none;border-bottom:solid 1px #white;">Embedded browser notes/limitations</div>
* Sign in to your myViewBoard account to load your personal preferences, including any customizations applied to backgrounds, shape lines and magic pens.
+
<div class="mw-collapsible-content">
 +
* The embedded browser does not keep records of previous logins, history or search. If you sign out of the program and access it later, it won’t remember any websites you’ve signed in to.
 +
* The embedded browser does not support pop-up pages.
 +
* Only one embedded browser can be active at a time.
 +
* During playback of online videos, setting the video to fullscreen fills up the whole embedded browser area only.
 +

====Floating toolbar====
+
===Magic Box [[File:I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg|38px|link=]]===
 +
====Import lessons and content====
 +
* Whiteboard can display your existing content in many common filetypes, such as Microsoft PowerPoint, many image and video files, and also PDF files.
 +
* Import content by first clicking or tapping [[File:I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg|25px|link=https://wiki.myviewboard.com/Magic_Box]] [[Magic Box]] in the main toolbar. From here you can navigate local (device) storage [[File:I-background-menu-local-harddrive.svg|25px|link=]], or your cloud storage account such as OneDrive [[File:I-cloud-integration-onedrive-buisness-g.svg|25px|link=]] or Google Drive [[File:I-cloud-integration-google-drive-g.svg|25px|link=]] [[Cloud Integration|(click here to read how to link you third-party accounts to your myViewBoard account)]].

Revision as of 18:19, 9 November 2021

Whiteboard full.svg Whiteboard for Android is a digital whiteboard designed specifically to be used on Android devices. 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.

Whiteboard for Android functions similarly to the Windows version with a few minor differences. Both work best on touchscreen devices.



Guide-book.svg
Toolbar-bottom.svg



Get Whiteboard

System requirements

  • Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.
  • We recommend a minimum screen resolution of 1080p, as buttons may be difficult to see on smaller or lower resolution screens.
  • If using a mobile device, we recommend using a table with a screen size of 10-inches or above.


Download and install

To install the app via the Google Play store:

  1. Go to the Google Play store.
  2. Search for myViewBoard Whiteboard.
  3. Click Install.

Alternatively, you can use the following link to install Whiteboard for Android:

To download the APK file, go to myviewboard.com and click Resources > Downloads > Whiteboard for Android, or go directly to https://myviewboard.com/download/#Android. Once the file has downloaded, open it to install - you may need to grant permission to install apps from unknown sources.

Some Interactive Flat Panel displays have Whiteboard for Android installed by default. To launch Whiteboard for Android on these devices, click the side tool bar, and select the myViewBoard logo. Whiteboard for Android automatically starts.


Activate

  1. Open Whiteboard if not already open.
  2. Click Activate in the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Click User (Entity Admin is for IT or organization managers).
  4. Next, enter a name1 for this instance of the Whiteboard software and your email address twice and click Submit.
  5. Open the email and follow the link to activate the software.

Congratulations, you can now use Whiteboard!


1Note for admins: Whiteboard name here refers to the software instance name. This is not a user's myViewBoard name. It can be changed by administrators via Entity Management > Software Instances.

  2. Sign in using an email address.
  3. Click the QR Code icon to open the phone's camera.
  4. Position the phone so that the QR code displayed on the whiteboard is inside the QR code scanner of the companion app.


Whiteboard working area


Whiteboard contains an infinite canvas and the ability to add more pages. There is the main toolbar, by default located at the bottom of the screen (it can be snapped to either the sides or bottom), and the floating toolbar, which can be freely dragged around.

For basic digital whiteboarding, there is the pen, shapes, eraser, and text tools. For more advanced interactive media, use I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg Magic Box. From here you can import local or cloud files, add sticky notes, mathematical tools, search approved web images, use the device camera, view files shared to the whiteboard via Throw, and host Pop Quizzes.

Using Whiteboard

Main toolbar icons

Toolbar that allows users to add annotations to the canvas area. This toolbar is always fixed to the right, left or bottom side of the program window.

Wireless Presentation I-main-toolbar-casting.svg (available on some devices)

Certain ViewBoard models also support Wireless Presentation, which allows screen sharing from the Whiteboard to other devices, and sharing other devices' screens to the Whiteboard (via myviewboard.com).

Unfortunately, not all devices can support this feature. Workarounds:

  • Use myViewBoard Live to share the whiteboard screen to others - this is a separate app, but can share your screen while using Whiteboard.
  • To receive screens from other devices, use myViewBoard Display. This app is preloaded on most ViewBoards. The person sharing their screen does not need to download any software, just go to myviewboard.com/display.


Note: Please make sure your myViewBoard account is Premium or Entity in order to have access to this feature.

Embedded browser I-floating-toolbar-embeded-browser.svg

Whiteboard includes a built-in web browser. This can be used to access webpages just like any other browser.


Embedded browser notes/limitations
  • The embedded browser does not keep records of previous logins, history or search. If you sign out of the program and access it later, it won’t remember any websites you’ve signed in to.
  • The embedded browser does not support pop-up pages.
  • Only one embedded browser can be active at a time.
  • During playback of online videos, setting the video to fullscreen fills up the whole embedded browser area only.
