Lightboard

A Lightboard provides an effective way to record online lectures. The writing surface allows the instructor to draw diagrams, equations, and formulas just as they would on a whiteboard. Using the glass writing surface, along with fluorescent markers and a video camera, tutorial Lightboard videos can be developed to demonstrate problem-solving and explain complex topics. (Without taking up a significant amount of class and lecture time)

The lecturer faces the viewer and the writing glows in front of the lecturer, reversing the image for the viewer. PowerPoint and Keynote slides can be merged onto the surface – but they must first be digitally reversed. Lightboard presentations meet our EMCC students need for clear and informative lecture capture, through quick and effective video productions. The videos can be shared with students through CANVAS, YouTube, or Google Share Drive.
