How do I share files in the online tool?

There are two ways for students and tutors to share files in the lesson room.

1. Images and documents can be added to the whiteboard.
2. All types of files can be shared as a chat attachment.

Files must be smaller than 2.5 MB in order to share them in the lesson room.

How can I add files to the whiteboard?

Use the “Add file…” option in the lesson room toolbar to select a file from your computer. You can also drag and drop files directly onto the whiteboard.

How many pages can I upload to the whiteboard?

Simply click the paper clip icon at the bottom right corner of the panel and select the file you’d like to share from your computer. Note that files can only be shared if they’re smaller than 2.5 MB.
