Interactive Whiteboards, Drawings & More

There's quite a few whiteboard tools you can use. The best choice is the one you are most comfortable with. Here's a few notes about the differences.

  • Google Keep has an option to insert a Drawing. The Drawing tool in Keep has different pages from grids to rulers etc. This helps with graphing.

  • Jamboard- is a collaborative whiteboard with sticky notes and drawing tools. It's easy to share and have multiple pages as well as to copy and paste images and links to.

  • Chrome Canvas- A drawing tool with different layers and pen types such as charcoal and pencil. The layers help you delete different elements and work over an image.

  • Google Drawings/ Drawings in Docs & Slides- easy image and text integration. You can right math formulas in docs and with the Equatio extension.

  • Autodraw has AI to help you create beautiful drawings and more.

  • There's even a meet extension that creates a whiteboard for you in the video call!
