Have you tried the whiteboard option in Zoom? Frankly, I am just not that good using a mouse to draw on the whiteboard and I don’t have a drawing tablet for my computer. However, I do have some other tools that I can use as alternatives.
Using an IPad as a Whiteboard
If you have an Ipad or a tablet, you can connect to your meeting or class. You could then share the screen and select the Whiteboard option.
When connecting using your mobile device, I recommend that you do not share your video or audio. Instead, use the audio through your computer.
If you use a program like Penultimate, you could save your annotations and redistribute them through Blackboard.
Using a Portable Whiteboard
I picked up a portable whiteboard from Office Max or Amazon and I have used it regularly for instruction. I also picked up a set of colored dry-erase markers.
The benefit of this set up is that you do not have to share your screen.
Well, there you have it. Two quick alternatives to the Zoom whiteboard.
