Switch to "Paper View Mode" and select the working area where you are going to write.

MEGA COOL: Our image correction algorithms will make the page look properly on the screen.

If you have a second camera, e.g. a laptop camera, use it to show yourself to make the remote lesson feel like in-person.

MEGA COOL: In Chattern you may use as many cameras as you can connect to your computer. Both, the teacher and the student, may show themselves and their work.

Create an online session and send the link to another participant.
You are ready for your online lesson!
By the way, Chattern is free for tutors and their students.

MEGA COOL: You may record the lesson to review it later.

WHY CHATTERN?

Now algebra and geometry, chemistry and physics are easy to do online. No more cumbersome digital whiteboards! Both, the tutor and the student can write by hand.
Most importantly, with two web cameras the teacher can observe the student's written work and their involvement in the lesson.
You may say No to pricey iPads or other tablets. Your only expenses would be a pen and paper.

CHATTERN IS FREE FOR EVERYONE!

Did we already say that working with Chattern is easy? Even registration is not required!

Q & A

What do I need for an online lesson?
We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge. You will also need a microphone (usually embedded into laptop or webcam), one or two web cameras, or use a smartphone as a camera. Don't forget a pen and paper.
Are there any limits on lesson duration?
There are no time limits.
Is it necessary to use a desktop or laptop computer? May I use Chattern on a smartphone or a tablet?
Chattern is a web application. It works on any device with the latest version of Chrome, Safari, Edge or Firefox browser. However, the screen size of a tablet or a smartphone is too small to work effectively with images or documents. Also, Screen Sharing and Session Recording are not available on a tablet/smartphone.
Can I organize group lessons in Chattern?
Currently we only support one-on-one lessons/meetings.
