For these folks, here’s a quick tutorial video that shows you how your files are stored and shared.
We have redone our Support page, to include our latest tutorial videos and to also weed out some obsolete references.
We hope you like it.
Kerika works well on modern browsers, but we still occasionally get folks trying to sign up using an obsolete or very old browser. (For example, Internet Explorer is obsolete; you need to use Microsoft Edge.)
To handle this, Kerika checks the browser information returned by your computer when you try to sign up or login, to weed out the unsupported old browsers.
We have expanded this now to make sure organizations that are using Mozilla’s Extended Support Release (ESR) program to manage their Firefox deployments are not hindered. Based upon this chart from Mozilla:
It looks like ESR 60.3.0 is equivalent to regular Firefox 63, so we now let people using this ESR (or newer) to use Kerika.
We have added @Open Window in South Africa to the list of schools we support with free Kerika Accounts. Sign up with an openwindow.co.za email and you will automatically qualify.
Here’s a feature that we suspect most people probably don’t know about: you can embed a live Twitter feed on any Kerika Whiteboard.
While working on a Whiteboard, click on the Add Web Content button that appears in the left-hand toolbar, towards the bottom:
You can reference Twitter feeds with a simple “@” symbol: you can add Kerika’s Twitter feed just by typing in “@Kerika”.
The Twitter feed appears as a live object on your Whiteboard:
You might find it convenient to rename the URL to something more descriptive: you can do this by selecting the object and using the right-mouse button to get this menu:
An updated tutorial video shows you how you will always know what changed on all your Kerika boards, even when you are working on the other side of the world.
