This brief guide will detail the specific whiteboard features available to moderators during an interview session. The guide will cover how to use these features to facilitate discussion, brainstorm ideas, and create visual aids.
The Whiteboard Features are Available on a Sidebar on the Left-Hand Side of the Stimuli
1. Close the whiteboard
After closing the whiteboard the file will still be available if it needs to be shared again. This is only visible for moderators.
2. Color of the markup
When the whiteboard is open, each respondent will be assigned a different color automatically. Moderators can easily change the color of respondents mark up in a live session.
***Note: Respondents will not be able to change their color. If the respondent's color is not clearly visible when marking up the chosen stimulus, it will be on the moderator to reassign the color for that respondent.
3. Select items to move around
Once a markup is created, it can be dragged to other parts of the screen
4. Drawing tool
Used to create markups in the whiteboard
5. Add text
Respondents and moderators are able to choose their font size (ranging from 10 to 22), and then click confirm to submit the text to the whiteboard, or "x" to cancel their input. Text cannot be edited after submitted. To resubmit, use the eraser on the text and resubmit the new text.
6. Draw straight lines
7. Draw squares and rectangles
8. Draw circles
9. Erase markups.
11. Reveal participant markup
Respondent markup is hidden from other respondents by default. A moderator can choose to reveal all the markup on the whiteboard to other respondents by clicking on the crossed-through eye icon on the whiteboard. Moderators, observers, and translators are able to see participant markups as they are made. They do not need to be revealed.
