MURAL is an application that allows remote teams to think and collaborate visually on a digital canvas in real-time, using a web browser on a desktop or mobile device. A variety of media can be added to a digital canvas including text, digital sticky notes and images. This guide is focused on the use of MURAL by staff members for activities that do not involve student engagement.

Creating a private room
Inviting others to a private room
A private room is not visible to other members of the Productivity workspace unless you have invited them to it. To invite someone to a private room, simply click on the name of the room from the left-hand menu and then click share from the right.
Creating a mural board
Now that you have created your private room, you are able to start creating mural boards, simply click 'Create new mural'.
