Can I use a tablet device for whiteboarding instead of the in classroom board?

A mobile tablet will allow you to share a whiteboard with both in-person students and remote students together in an on-campus classroom.  You can write more precisely on the whiteboard if you have an Apple pencil or stylus for Android. 

In the classroom,  log into Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate on either the lectern computer or your personal laptop. You will use this login to run the session, share content and respond to questions. 

In order to then share the whiteboard, log into the Zoom app or Blackboard Collaborate in a browser, on an iPad or Android tablet. As the UIC credentials only allow one login at a time, you will use a guest link in order to access the session on a tablet.

To Access the Whiteboard:

Zoom on iPad

1. Tap Share Content in the meeting controls.

2. Tap Whiteboard.

3. The annotation tools should appear automatically, but you can tap the pen tool to show and hide them.

4. When you are done, tap Stop Share.

Zoom on Android

1. Tap Share in the meeting controls.

2. Tap Share Whiteboard.

3. Tap the pen icon to open the annotation tools.

4. When you are done, tap the pen icon to close the annotation tools and tap Stop Share.
