Whiteboard.fi is a free online whiteboard tool for teachers to engage with their students both in the classroom or during remote learning. Each student with the code to join the class receives a whiteboard where they can draw, write text or make notations. The teacher is able to see all of the students' whiteboards in real time and follow their progress. Students only see the teacher's whiteboard.

Evaluation: Whiteboard.fi has a very simple interface and it’s a very easy way to connect with students and make classes more interactive. It is a good tool to try in times of schools extended remote learning. You supply the content. One drawback is that the free version does not allow you to save or reuse your whiteboards nor inserting PDFs.

Cost: Free
