Lightboard (Zone 3)

Using the Lightboard

The Lightboard allows faculty students to produce short videos introducing concepts visually on a glass markerboard as they speak directly to a camera. They write directly on the illuminated glass with neon markers to illustrate points and concepts as they talk. A PowerPoint image can be merged to appear in the video as if it has been projected onto the writing surface. Lightboard is useful for a lecture, a lab demonstration, presentations or project demos, problem explanations, homework explication, and more. This feature is only available in Zone 3.
