Whiteboard – File Options & VoIP Conferencing

Online Collaborations – using Scriblink

A free digital whiteboard that users can share online in real-time. Similar to using a pen and paper but utilizing the web to be able to access and share at anytime from anywhere. The homepage immediately opens to the main whiteboard. This is a nice application for your next collaborative project, for brainstorming, layout planning, concept diagramming, tutoring students/friends, or just having fun!

Review of Scriblink Features:

  • Privacy: the board is all yours, open only to the people you choose to invite
  • Dynamic Tools: use shapes, hundreds of colors, a size bar, a text feature, and a grid to help guide your drawings
  • File Options: gives you the ability to print, save, and email your work
  • Image Uploader: upload an image onto the whiteboard as the background, allowing you to share it, mark it, deface it, or highlight key elements
  • In-Screen Chat: when working with others, no need to sign in to third party software, simply use our in-screen chat
  • VoIP Conferencing: if you have a mic for your computer, you can automatically connect with your collaborators (no software necessary) and talk for free for as long as you like
  • File transfer: when emailing is too much of a hassle, simply transfer files directly to others while using the application

Summary Review and Grade

  • No Registration Required
  • No Downloads
  • No Installation Required
  • Works on All Web-browsers
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows)
  • Easily invite others – via email or provide a specific URL
  • Print, save or email your completed project
  • Nice for uploading and commenting on images
  • Integrates many applications (file transferring, online chat, VoIP Conferencing)
  • Basic whiteboarding features – only one page (board), no typing (only uses mouse pointer)

Although the application integrates additional features such as online chat and VoIP, it is still a very basic whiteboarding application and does not offer the option to “type text” on the board.  This however, is still a nice application to try in advance of your next project that involves members from different work locations, especially if you plan to review images, design layouts, projects specs, etc.

    Nice post. In addition to Scribklink, one may even use gomeetnow online collaboration tool. It has whiteboard available for drawing.
