Google Jamboard

What is Google Jamboard?

Google Jamboard is a collaborative digital whiteboard for creating and editing content with other users. They are 55-inch, 4K touch displays. Jamboards can be found in the Simpson and Meyer Libraries. There are also web and app versions that can be used separately from the Jamboard, but share all of its great features.

How can it help you?

Jamboard lets you upload files from Drive, search for content on the web, and draw using your fingers or the stylus with different colors and pen tips. You and your collaborators can draw at the same time in session frames called "jams".

Examples of Use

  • Meet virtually with students or a guest lecturer
