This series of tutorial posts showcases ways that our whiteboard app Explain Everything can be used seamlessly with one of Finalsite’s terrific school apps, Finalsite Learn, to support instruction, feedback, creativity, and collaborative learning.

In this second tutorial, we show how to export interactive whiteboard notes as a PDF from Explain Everything and quickly add them to a Finalsite Group page’s Activity Stream. This can be done in 4 easy steps.

  1. Create the content in Explain Everything during class.
  2. Export the project as a PDF to any cloud based source (Gdrive, Dropbox, Email, iCloud Drive, etc.).
  3. Go to the Activity Stream for a Finalsite Group page and enter place holder text.
  4. Upload the PDF file from whatever location you exported it to in step 2.

That’s it!

Watch the video to see how easily it can be done.
