Introducing Zoom Whiteboard, A New Visual Collaboration Solution
Modern communication solutions like video conferencing have transformed our ability to collaborate and get more done together in a digital space, whether in the office, at home, in the classroom, or somewhere in between. However, capturing and directing the energy, spontaneity, and free-flowing creativity that comes with an in-person connection in a virtual meeting can be difficult.
With Zoom Whiteboard, you can brainstorm and collaborate on a persistent, expandable, digital canvas. In-person and remote teams can ideate from Zoom-enabled devices, providing you and your team with the intuitive features you need to collaborate.
Reimagine the drawing board with Zoom Whiteboard
We’ve redesigned our virtual whiteboarding experience to bring you the all-new Zoom Whiteboard, a cross-platform visual collaboration solution built right into Zoom Meetings and Zoom Rooms for Touch devices like the DTEN D7 and Neat Board, with support for Zoom Team Chat coming soon.
Complement your Zoom Rooms with a dedicated Companion Whiteboard, like the new DTEN ONboard, the first purpose-built interactive touch display for advanced whiteboarding coming soon.
And because Zoom Whiteboard is persistent, you can seamlessly access your saved whiteboards at any time — you can even create and access your whiteboards in Zoom Rooms, no meeting required!

An online whiteboard solution for modern collaboration
The ability to collaborate visually in a digital space is an invaluable tool for teams in a wide range of industries and across many use cases, including:
- Education – Create an engaging space where students can share ideas, work together to solve problems and enjoy a visual breakdown of concepts and lessons. Teachers can create a visual representation of lesson plans during faculty meetings.
- Training – Provide new hires with simple visual diagrams they can amend and make notes on, create engaging team-building and problem-solving exercises, and help retain new information during onboarding sessions.
- Project management – Streamline the sharing, review, and editing of project roadmaps, and help your teams keep a close eye on your progress by using an online whiteboard to visually document process flows, track changes, and more.
