What is best software to download for freehand drawing on Sony touchscreen TV display connected to a Windows PC?

Hi,

We have a 4K Sony TV monitor with a touch screen overlay on it.

A Windows PC is connected to this screen via a HDMI cable.

With this PC and display, we use Microsoft Word for brainstorming sessions where people can illustrate their ideas via the touch aspect of the Sony display overlay.

Although this solution is okay, it is not ideal.

We would like to use software created mainly for use with touchscreen drawing.

What would you recommend as the best software for touchscreen drawing?

Thanks,
Robbie

If this is for Windows 10, I believe Microsoft actually has their own White Board APP on the store that you can download. It's just called Microsoft Whiteboard.

I also found this:

http://open-sankore.org/

It seems to be a pretty fleshed out open-source software meant for teaching.

Thank you for your helpful reply William Miller.

Can this software be used with touch screens via someone's finger rather than using a pen?

Also, is it easy to learn how to use the Open-Sankore software?

Thanks,
Robbie

It's pretty straight-forward from what I was able to tell. Also, it should just work with the touchscreen however the touchscreen works.

Thank you William for your response.

Would the Open-Sankore software work well with an Android operating system?

If not, what would be a suitable whiteboard software solution to use for both Windows and Android operating systems?

Thanks,

Hello! Regarding screen drawing and creating lectures, this screen recorder looks professional and easy to use. Look at this YouTube video:

Hi,

Thanks for your inputs.

We are mainly looking for a whiteboard solution which allows for people to partake in brainstorming sessions.

Would there be any whiteboard software for Windows 10 that would allow for collaboration between users using different PCs, laptops and mobile devices.

Thanks,
Robbie
