I wrote last week about Scriblink, an online virtual whiteboard that can be a cool tool for students working in groups. It is neat, but one problem I’ve found with it is that you can’t copy and paste on it — you can only type, write, or draw (which, of course, is pretty neat in itself).
I’ve discovered another online virtual whiteboard application called Skrbl which does allow copying and pasting. I’m still exploring how the two compare in other ways.
I’ve placed the link on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Collaborative Stories.
Have you looked at WiziQ? Online interactive whiteboard with chat capabilities, has similarities to Eluminate but it’s free!
