NoteBookCast - An Online, Collaborative Whiteboard for Every Device

NoteBookCast is a free whiteboard tool that will work in the web browser on a laptop, iPad, Android tablet, and Windows tablet. NoteBookCast is a collaborative whiteboard tool. You can invite others to join your whiteboard by entering the code assigned to your whiteboard. You can chat while drawing on NoteBookCast whiteboards.

While you can create an account on NoteBookCast, it is not a requirement for using the service. You can create a whiteboard by simply clicking "create a whiteboard" then entering a nickname for yourself to use on the whiteboard. If you do create a NoteBookCast account you can save your whiteboards and create whiteboard templates to re-use.

Applications for Education
NoteBookCast could be a good tool for students to use to remotely work together to solve problems, create mindmaps, or tutor each other.

Scoot & Doodle - Drawing and Mind Mapping in Google+ Hangouts

Scoot & Doodle is a fun Google+ Hangout application that Kyle Pace recently introduced to me. Scoot & Doodle provides a blank canvas on which you can draw, stamp, and type. You can hangout and collaborate with up to nine people at a time on Scoot & Doodle. You can save each of your canvases in a Scoot & Doodle scrapbook. See how it works in the video below.


Applications for Education
Scoot & Doodle could be a good tool for creating free-hand mind maps, to explain how to solve a mathematics problem, or to just have fun creating drawings to use in a presentation.

Interactive Illimitably - Collaborative Drawing

Interactive Illimitably is a free collaborative drawing tool that I learned about through a comment on my post of 11 collaborative drawing tools.  Interactive Illimitably provides a place for you to create a room with a custom name in which you can draw and chat with others. To get started just select a chat font style, name your room, and specify if you want your room to allow drawing, chatting or both. To have people join your drawing and chatting room, just give them the link assigned to your room. While there is a registration option, you don't need to register to use the site.

Applications for Education
Interactive Illimitably could be used by students to collaborate on the creation of story webs. Students could also use the service to collaborate on the creation of diagrams to use in presentations that they give to their classmates.
