Annotate offers several tools that allow educators to use their whiteboards while remaining completely mobile in the classroom. Use the projection feature to project information from a mobile device onto your whiteboard from anywhere in the room. Free plans offer up to two hours of sharing daily. Add the optional extension to Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers to annotate web pages, take screen captures, and highlight online information. Enroll up to ten students in a course to allow students to follow your screen on their device. Once you create a class, use Annotate to live stream information, take assessments, and schedule homework. Annotate also has a built-in graphing calculator that is handy for math instructors.

In the Classroom

Use Annotate.net as a resource for using your whiteboard while still maintaining the freedom to interact with students in other classroom areas than standing at the front. Move around the room as you use Annotate to find examples of misinformation or difficulty with work, highlight student examples that share innovative thinking, or take advantage of teachable moments as they arise. Hand your device over to students to demonstrate their understanding of concepts or highlight questions they may have.
