Transcript of the 'Changing the frame background in Google Jamboard' video.

This is the transcript for 'Changing the frame background in Google Jamboard' video.

Hi. In this video, you'll learn how to change the frame background in Google Jamboard. When you first start working on a Jamboard, you'll notice it's just a plain white background, but it doesn't have to stay that way. You can use the set background button to change it to dots, lines, grids, and even a couple of dark colours. Try it and see. Be careful, though. Changing the background of a frame changes it for everyone working in the jam, so make sure you aren't doing it in a way that would affect anyone else. Remember, when you are collaborating with others, the first rule is to play nice and be considerate.

You can also upload your own frame backgrounds using this button. This is usually something that your teachers would do, but there maybe times you want to do it for yourself. Adding a background image works the same way as a normal image search. For best results, though, you probably want to find a background image to be the same shape as the frame itself, so it fills the whole frame. We sometimes refer to this as 16:9, as it describes the proportions of the frame. You might also notice the clear frame button, which will clear everything on the frame, drawings, images, sticky notes, everything. Be really careful with this button. It's handy if you really do want to clear the frame, but it's also easy to accidentally delete everything on the page, including other people's work. If you ever clear the frame by mistake, just press the undo button right away to bring everything back. See you in the next video.
