The two key things are probably to stress:

  1. "I will need you to save a bookmark, so you can start vMiniWB really quickly on future occasions." and
  2. "In order to remember your account, vMiniWB needs to use cookies, so please make sure you're not incognito."

Suggested training 'tasks'

These instructions are targeted at the 'teacher'. The 'students' should co-operate as cooperative pretend students.

  1. Clear the student screens and use the top left admin board to draw a noughts and crosses board. Hold 'shift' or '/' to draw straight lines.
  2. Play turns individually, so students in blue, teacher in red to grasp the interaction.
  3. Hold 't' and click on a student board to 'tick' if they win. Hold 'x' and click on a student board to add a 'cross'.
  4. Experiment with sorting the boards by pressing i, r, h, c, v, s, f, b or e (See help for details). I mostly use i, but sometimes r.
