Jamboard


Overview

Jamboard is Google’s whiteboard which is connected to the G-suite. Users have the ability to present, edit and share files during jams (meetings) with Google services like Drive, Sheets, and Slides. Users can also participate in the jams in the actual room or on devices that have the respective companion app. 

The board can handle 16 touchpoints at once and is used with a stylus. Below is a video from Google showing the functions of the Jamboard. The hardware information sheet is located below.

Jams

Jams are meetings created using the Jamboard or pushed to the board by using the companion Jamboard app.

Owning "Jams"  versus owning  "Jamboard"

When the Jamboard is not in use or a Jam has ended the board has a blank ownerless jam on its screen. When it prompts for email to create a jam,  this is to own the new blank jam. 

When the jam has an owner, they can reopen and push that jam using only the app back on a Jamboard if the jam gets closed on the Jamboard.

Since the board does not keep past jams or email addresses, you can not re-open jams from the board itself nor can you save jams on the board. The companion app is needed to reopen and save jams for future use.

 JamBoard companion app

In addition to the board, there is an app available for iOS and Android devices. Its functions include being able to save jams you own or collaborated and pushing saved jams to available nearby jam board. You can also use the app to join other's jams ( but the invitation must be accepted).
