How do I save my Whiteboard and do I have file format options?

Open the Save File dialog by doing one of the following:

From the File menu, select Save and then choose Whiteboard.

The Select Screens dialog box appears. Choose whether you want to save all the screens in the Current Screen Group, only the Current Screen or Selected Screens. If you choose Selected Screens, you will then see a list of all the screens. Select the screen(s) you wish to save. Use Shift or Control to select multiple screens. Then click OK.

You can save the Whiteboard screens in the following formats:

WBD File:
When Whiteboard screens are saved as a Whiteboard file (.wbd), they are saved as one file that can only be imported and reviewed in an Blackboard Collaborate session.

WBP File:
When Whiteboard screens are saved as a Protected Whiteboard file (.wbp), they are saved as one file that can only be imported and reviewed in an Blackboard Collaborate session. These files are protected and cannot be printed, saved, or edited unless the moderator removes the protection flag by going to Tools, Whiteboard, and de-selecting the option Protect Whiteboard.

PDF File:
When Whiteboard screens are saved as a PDF file (.pdf), they are saved as one file and can be reviewed outside of the Blackboard Collaborate environment.

PNG File:
When Whiteboard screens are saved as Image files (.png), they are saved as separate images and can be loaded individually onto the Whiteboard as images or used in any other image processing application.
