Being able to share content no matter what the device has always been fundamental to collaboration and the sharing of great ideas. At DisplayNote we've recognised this need and we're happy to announce that students can now join a DisplayNote session on a Chromebook or Chrome enabled Browser.
Joining A Session
Joining a DisplayNote session from a Chromebook couldn't be easier. Simply go to http://www.join.displaynote.com, enter your Name, Session ID and press Join Now.
Once students are connected, all teachers need to do is tap the right arrow or capture button and that sends a copy of their screen out to any connecting Chromebook devices. Teachers will also be able to share whiteboard backgrounds, images, annotations and instant messages with Chromebook devices.
For the students they can share annotations with the teacher and colleagues and capture and save any slide they might want to keep for review.
In addition, as well as connecting to a session they can also use DisplayNote for some stand-alone whiteboarding with pen tools, shapes, highlighters, drag and drop images, lines and eraser.
