Our Writing Capability
Great! We have our whiteboard sorted, but how do we write?
Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to write on plain paper and hold your writing from your page to a webcam every three minutes!
Computer/laptop and graphics tablet – if your computer or laptop doesn’t have touchscreen capability – not to worry. You can purchase a graphics tablet (often grouped with a stylus pen – check before your purchase!). Wacom is my graphics tablet of choice. Click here to watch videos on how graphics tablets work.
Tablet and stylus pen – if you have a tablet or laptop with touchscreen capability, then acquiring a suitable stylus pen will be great for online tuition lessons. This experience is truly like writing on pen and paper!
