How to use the Whiteboard capability of Surface in mashme

While in a mashme session, presenters can use the incorporated Microsoft Surface Whiteboard application as part of the training / course process.


As mashme has discontinued the in-app mashme whiteboard, the use of the Microsoft Surface Whiteboard is the alternative that the presenters need to use if they want to draw some as a tool in a training process.


To use the Surface Whiteboard, the presenter needs to use the Screen Sharing option of mashme, sharing either the whole screen or only the Surface Whiteboard app.


The Surface Whiteboard app can be opened from the quick launch options available that can be found either via the Microsoft Start Menu of the Surface device or the quick launch icon available on the Task Bar near the clock of the desktop.


While using the Microsoft Surface Whiteboard, the presenter can not offer to participants the possibility of full collaboration as the application is a 3rd party and not included directly into the mashme platform.
