I received a couple of requests to post on collaborative whiteboard apps for Android. So I went ahead and compiled this short list. Using these collaborative whiteboards, students will be able to collectively jot down ideas, brainstorm a topic, sketch plans, draw shapes and doodle and many more. If you are looking for similar apps to use on your iPad, check out this page instead. Enjoy
1- Explain Everything
Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design, screencasting, and interactive whiteboard tool that lets you annotate, animate, narrate, import, and export almost anything to and from almost anywhere. Create slides, draw in any color, add shapes, add text, and use a laser pointer. Rotate, move, scale, copy, paste, clone, and lock any object added to the stage.
2- Whiteboard: Collaborative Draw
Whiteboard is a great Android app for real-time drawing and painting. It provides a simple yet powerful interface with a full-screen canvas that students can draw on.
