Insert Image Captures into Whiteboard

Image captures can now be directly inserted into Whiteboard. Once you have taken a capture in ClassFlow Desktop, open Whiteboard, select the main hamburger menu and select Capture. From here, you will see all of your image captures in the ClassFlowDesktop folder. Select an image and it will insert in the middle of the lesson card. 


Insert Image Files into Whiteboard

In Whiteboard, you can now insert image files from your file browser directly to your lesson. Select a single PNG, JPG, or JPEG images from your resources and it will insert in the middle of the lesson card that is currently selected.


Drag and Drop Files into Whiteboard

In whiteboard, you can drag and drop image files from your file browser directly onto your lesson cards. You can drag a single PNG, JPG, or JPEG image file onto the lesson card and it will insert in the middle of the lesson card that is currently selected. If the file is not one of these 3 file types, you will see a red indicator and the file will not insert onto the lesson card.

Lesson Builder

Duplicate to Student Cards

In order to simply the process of creating a student card, you can now duplicate the teacher card to the student card track without having to copy and move the teacher card. Once you select Duplicate to Student Card from the menu options on the card summary panel, all contents from that teacher card will be duplicated to the student card track. You can overwrite the current card content in the student track by selecting the option again. Please note you will not be able to undo this function, but you can remove the student card from the lesson.


Improving the Quality of Inserting PDFs

The image of inserted PDF files in Presenter and Preview has been increased to improve quality on high resolution panels.


Default to Lesson Card Selected when available

When Whiteboard, Lesson Builder, or Preview are open in ClassFlow Desktop and a poll is started, Lesson Card will be selected by default from the image options.
