The 'Answer Box' feature allows teachers to easily add a simple gray box to panels to dedicate a space for students to write or type. This is an immediate indicator for students that their participation is needed on the panel. Answer boxes can be used to indicate a space for notes or a space for students to answer questions on a panel.
Due to the nature of DyKnow's collaborative notetaking functionality, "collisions" between student and teacher content are inevitable. Answer boxes are one easy way to ensure these collisions are kept to a minimum.
