Whiteboard

Designed specifically for education, the Whiteboard App also includes convenient teaching tools that enhance productivity and collaboration opportunities. You can easily illustrate an idea with pre-made templates, such as charts, tables, mind maps, and fractions. The Whiteboard App also offers multiple colors and lined background options to aid with writing, and ruler and protractor tools to allow you to instantly draw perfect lines and angles.
