Ziteboard, a combination of "Zoomable and whiteboard", is a web-based whiteboard that allows for real-time collaboration. The Pro version is a great investment as it includes anonymous whiteboards that don't require students (or clients) to register or login. Features like Mirror View ensure that people using various devices see the same area of the board and Lock Image to make sure images are not deletable.

3. Hack Back External Triggers
