Jamboard Pilot at FITC

The Faculty Instructional Technology Center (FITC) and the Library's Digital Scholarship Commons (DSC) are pleased to host a pilot of the Google Jamboard at UCSC. Jamboard is a digital, collaborative whiteboard designed by Google to enhance your creativity and enable a higher degree of interactivity among teams.

We invite all students, faculty, and other interested UCSC affiliates to try out this amazing new tool. Jamboards are currently available through the FITC in McHenry Room 1330, and through the DSC on the ground floor of McHenry Library:

  • In the FITC: We are offering 30 minute appointment slots during our business hours. You may sign up for one or two slots for your group using the link below. We welcome groups of around 2-5 individuals.
    Sign up for a slot here!
    Sessions will take place at the FITC office in McHenry 1330. Take the South Elevator or stairs down to the first floor. The Student Consultant on duty will assist you with getting started.

  • In the DSC: The Jamboard in the DSC is available to be checked out for up to 4 hours throug the Media Desk in the David Kirk DSC. The Media Desk is commonly open from 10AM to 10:30PM Monday through Thursday, 10AM to 5PM on Fridays, and 11AM to 7PM on Saturdays. For more information on the DSC Jamboard and availability, look here.

After your session, we request that you provide us feedback about your experience. Please keep these  key questions in mind while using the Jamboard to facilitate completing the survey:

  1. What is the purpose of the collaboration?
  2. Describe the interactions with your group members as well as the Jamboard.
  3. Is the Jamboard useful? Efficient? Easy to use? Appealing or desirable? Does it bring you joy or frustration?
  4. What features do you like/dislike?
  5. Did you encounter any issues or do you have any concerns? 

You will receive a link to the survey after your visit. Completing the survey will allow us to provide insights and influence the decision of whether or not to purchase more Jamboards for the campus.
