Share a whiteboard
host or presenter (or a participant that has been given rights)
can use a whiteboard to create collaborative text, drawings, and
other annotations in a meeting.
Adobe Connect administrators
can change pod, sharing, and other settings to adhere to standards
for governance. These settings affect the layout of meeting rooms
and what you can do in meeting rooms. For more information, see Working with compliance and control settings
Create and display a whiteboard
A whiteboard allows hosts or presenters to
create text, lines, circles, squares, and other freehand drawings
in real time during a meeting.
You can use a whiteboard in
two different ways in a Share pod:
whiteboard allows presenters to create content on a white background.
An overlay whiteboard allows presenters to create content
over an existing document in a Share pod, adding annotations to
and drawing on the document. You can lay a whiteboard over presentations,
JPG, SWF, FLV, and PDF documents.
If you turn off sharing,
change the content in a Share pod, or close the Share pod, the whiteboard
is still part of the meeting room and can be displayed again.
