My teachers make use of the Promethean build in WHITEBOARD app on the Promethean flat panels (ActivePanel Titanium).
Due to the current pandemic situation they have to teach in the classroom and via Microsoft Teams to the children that are in quarantine and follow the lessons online.
Can you share the build in Whiteboard app in the MS Teams meeting?
I know you can use the flatscreen as a second screen in Windows and share that specific screen in your MS Teams meeting but it is not the build in Whiteboard app they’re used to work with.
I can share my laptop/PC/tablet via the ActiveCast app but that works only from my device to the Promethean…we want to share in the opposite way…from the Promethean to the PC…
Alternatively, is there a Windows Whiteboard application with the same functionality as the one that is build in the flat panel?

Thanks for your post. I think the best solution would be to install the Microsoft Teams app directly onto the ActivPanel. Once installed, the teacher can then log in and host their meeting from the Panel rather than from their computer. If they want to share their screen, they can then do this and open up the built-in Promethean Whiteboard App and make annotations.
1/ Install the Microsoft Teams App from the Promethean App Store
2/ Open the Microsoft Teams app, log in and begin the meeting
3/ During the meeting, to share the Panel’s interface, press the three dots
4/ Press the Share button
5/ Then press Share screen
6/ A window may display asking you if you want Teams to display over other apps. You can minimise this screen by press the minimise icon at the bottom.
7/ You can then open any other application on the ActivPanel such as a web browser or Promethean Whiteboard App and Teams will be running in the background and sharing the screen.
If the teacher needs to return to Teams to stop sharing or to chat with the class for example, it can be easily found by clicking “Recent Apps” on the unified menu.
I hope this information helps. Please let us know if this works for you.
