Jamboard – Digital Whiteboard Application


Jamboard logo

For course instructors who are accustomed to presenting on a whiteboard in the classroom, using a tablet (e.g. Apple iPad, Microsoft Surface…) can be a good replacement for displaying what you write remotely. Google’s Jamboard is an online whiteboard application that can host live sessions for creating and editing content whiteboard-style (sketch ideas, drop images, add notes…), and share it with group members via U-M Google Drive. The Jamboard tablet app can be used to perform all of the available editing tasks, and there are also phone and web apps available that offer a subset of the editing features.

How to Access Jamboard

Instructors who are interested in using Jamboard, or have questions about the Jamboard service should contact the ITS Service Center.
