February brings several new enhancements to improve your myViewBoard experience.
New Menu Options
The Settings menu gets two new options:
- We added Tamil to our list of supported languages. To switch to Tamil, click the gear icon on the title bar, and select Tamil from the language options.
- The settings menu now includes the option to change the language of the handwriting recognition feature. Click the Handwriting Recognizer selection to see available languages.
Enhancements to the myViewBoard Experience
To start off, we’ve updated the splash screen!
When using the selection tool, selected objects will now have an orange outline. This makes it easier to identify selected objects against the new default white background.
Additionally, images received via the PopQuiz feature will no longer be stretched and will be shown in their original aspect ratio.
Saving a .vBoard file no longer clears the undo and redo history, so you have less worries during lesson creation. Note that myViewBoard offers unlimited undo actions so feel free to experiment to your heart’s content.
myViewBoard Original Content Video-assisted Learning
We’ve added a new section on the wiki: myViewBoard Original Content Video-assisted Learning. These lessons integrate myViewBoard Clips with myViewBoard Original Content to increase student engagement and participation in the classroom. We currently offer the following:
Move the hands of the clock to match the time shown on the video.
Use the video to match the correct colored circles to the labels.
- Managing Tasks with Kanban Boards
Organize your tasks using Sticky Notes on this Kanban board. If you need help, watch the embedded YouTube video as a guide.
- US Map Puzzle
Introduce key facts about each of the US states in a dynamic, interactive video format maximizing retention and memory.
