You have a great idea while you’re in an online meeting and you want to get others’ input but you’re stuck on how to do that in a way that’s easy for everyone.
You had a great online workshop (yes it’s possible) and you want to keep the conversation going but you’re stumped with how to do that in a way that works for everyone.
Your team and you have loads of ideas but you’re at a loss for a way to curate them in an easy way that lasts.
Voila! Kick your consternation to the curb with Jamboard.
It’s a super easy-to-use online collaboration tool. And a PhD in computers is definitely not required.
What can you do with Jamboard? Lots!
- Enter text in a variety of colours and ways (e.g. typing, ‘writing,’ or ‘painting’
- Add sticky notes (in a variety of colours)
- Add pictures, images, photos
- Add shapes
- Use a laser pointer (for example if you’re reviewing the document with a group online you can draw their attention to specific parts)
- Change up the background of the document
- Erase any/all of the above
- Add pages (you don’t have to squish everything into one page)
- Share the document’s URL with others
- Control how others interact with your Jamboard, e.g. as an editor (they can change the Jamboard) or as a viewer (they can view only)
This is far from the only online collaboration tool (see: Hankering for hybrid events? Here’s how, part one) but if you’re looking for a really simple tool that everyone can use, this may just be your ticket to tech tool ease.
See the link below to an example Jamboard you can practice on
BTW have you signed up for this week’s Learning and Development Roundtable on Tips and tools to increase your work-life balance during Covid and beyond? It’s not too late. More info here and RSVP link here.
And don’t hesitate to share the registration link with a friend and/or colleague. The more the merrier.
Now go on and learn, laugh and lead
- Grab the attention of your fellow colleagues with your Jamboard as swiftly as these dog owners do pretending to be on a phone call and using their pet’s favourite words.
- Create your own Jamboard and use it for your next online, in-person, or hybrid meeting.
