Online Whiteboard Settings
The Online Whiteboard Settings give you additional options to control the Whiteboard in the VEDAMO`s Virtual Classroom.
How to access the settings
Step 1: Click on the three dots in the bottom left corner.
Step 2: Click on the Online Whiteboard settings section.
In the menu that will open, the Whiteboard settings tab will be selected by default.
Allow participants to browse the whiteboard pages
When this option is turned ON the participants in the session will be able to switch to different pages independently from the host or the other participants.
Turning the option OFF (default state) gives the host the ability to choose which page of the whiteboard will be currently visible for all participants in the virtual classroom.
NOTE: This setting cannot be turned ON in one breakout room and turned OFF in another. Turning it on affects every participant and every group in the current session.
Switch participants to a simple view-only mode
This option controls the interface and the overall workspace of the Whiteboard.
When turned ON, participants in the current session will have no access to the whiteboard tools on the left side and the functional windows buttons on the right side of the virtual classroom. The focus is shifted only to the content on the whiteboard. This feature is useful when working with preschool or elementary students to avoid unwanted distractions.
However, the whiteboard tools and the functional windows buttons will remain visible on the host side.
Below are two examples that illustrate differences in the layout from the host’s as well as the participant’s points of view.
NOTE: This setting cannot be turned ON in one breakout room and turned OFF in another. Turning it on effects every participant and group in the current session.
