Maybe you’re creating a reference board for a photography project? You can add your own drawings, example images from your computer or from Google, voice clippings that you’ve created for notes and even a map to save shoot locations. Or maybe you are in a small project group for an English class, you can add on questions and other users can then add voice, text or handwritten notes in response. There are so many possibilities.
