If you need to run remote learning courses, organize digital files, prepare lesson plans, or assess students, online whiteboards from Weje will come in handy. Teachers can use versatile digital workspaces for keeping, structuring, and sharing all sorts of information, including tables, documents, PDFs, media, and others.
With Weje one can create an unlimited number of digital whiteboards, complete them with educational materials, share access with students, and easily edit from any device and place. Check out the tutorial on how to prepare for the class using Weje’s lesson plan template.
Sign up with Weje and explore the digital workspace. Here, you can start with a blank canvas or choose one from the templates library.
Navigate to the “All Templates” section and select a “Lesson Plan”. Rename the board as required, and click the “Create” button.
You will see a new whiteboard with empty cards - ready to be filled in with your teaching materials.
The default lesson plan template includes 3 sections: GENERAL, CONTENT, and ASSESSMENT. Each of these has several subsections and data cards, named as is common in planning, e.g. “Topic” or “Date”. You can re-group, delete, or rename cards according to teaching needs or the lesson type.
Use a double-click with the left mouse button to work with a data card. You can either copy and paste the information there or type text with the keyboard.
To duplicate a card, select it with a cursor and click “Create a copy” on the highlighted menu.
To change color or title, expand or collapse a card, select it with a cursor and click on respective actions on the highlighted menu. The same can be done with the entire canvas.
You can add images, videos, and documents to a lesson plan. To do so, upload files on the whiteboard or copy and paste links to them to any blank space. You also can edit Google Docs just from the whiteboard, as soon as you have been granted editor rights.
To group scattered objects, just drag and drop them to where needed. To establish connections, use arrows, leave comments, or paint on a whiteboard with an online drawing tool.
After you’ve prepared a lesson plan template, it’s time to invite collaborators.
Click “...” at the top right corner of the whiteboard to open Settings and mention co-editors in the “General access” field. Assign one of 2 roles - “Reader” or “Editor” - and click “Invite”. To accept invitations, users should have registered Weje accounts.
You can also share access to the board via the link. To do so, open settings, click “Publish”, choose access rights (“Reader” or “Editor” ) for ones who will view your lesson plan, and copy the URL. With the link, you can share a canvas with both registered users and ones without an account.
Copying is particularly helpful when you need to use a certain template multiple times. Open Settings and click “Copy board”. You will then see the duplicated whiteboard in the “All boards” list in your account.
Weje allows you to be agile when preparing lesson plans. You can either do this on your own or organize educational materials with one of the templates offered. Also, you can invite other teachers and students to your whiteboard - to involve them in the editing process or engage with learning materials even better.
