Educators around the world love using Whiteboard.Chat to draw, share and collaborate. They also love the ability to watch student learning and progress in real-time. Over the past few months, we have heard many requests to integrate Whiteboard.Chat with both the Immersive Reader, as well as OneNote and today we are excited to announce two new integrations.
Immersive Reader in Whiteboard.chat
Make content more inclusive is what Immersive Reader is best at, and now you can launch the Immersive Reader directly from different text types in Whiteboard.Chat elements. As you see in the video below , you can even launch the Immersive Reader from an embedded PDF in Whiteboard.Chat! This integration is now available worldwide and students can use it today.
Embed a Whiteboard.Chat into OneNote
The OneNote binder metaphor, and the ability to easily distribute Whiteboard.Chat pages in OneNote, organize them, or distribute to others in OneNote Class Notebook, seemed like a great match. Today we are excited to announce the integration between Whiteboard.Chat and OneNote!
You can now paste the URL of any Whiteboard.Chat board onto a OneNote page and it will render it as a live interactive embed, similar to how we support embedding many apps into OneNote
To see some examples or how easy this is to do in OneNote, see the example video below. This integration works in OneNote Windows 10, Online, Mac, iPad, Android. We hope to bring this to OneNote 2016 Desktop later this summer.
We hope you enjoy this new integration to bring together three great apps that educators love!
