Microsoft Whiteboard – Digital canvas
Microsoft Whiteboard is a digital collaboration canvas on which you can draw, write, add note cards, paste pages from a file, and so on. Whiteboard also has templates which you can use for example brainstorming or planning. Whiteboard can be used either to work alone or to share the output with others either for review or co-working.
