If you have enabled annotation in your Zoom settings, you can use your Zoom Whiteboard as a way for students to share ideas and collaborate in real time.


  1. Check everyone’s mood or starting point for a discussion by having everyone add a word / image / or drawing to the board.
  2. Provide an image for students to react to or express their understanding. For example, place a binary like agency and structure and have students decide where their preference lies using text, a drawing, or a stamp.
  3. Create a spectogram by making a line on the whiteboard, defining the ends, and having students type their names or use the stamp function to place themselves on the spectrum.

Tips and Tricks

  • You can save an image of the Whiteboard at any time to refer to later.
