The Lightboard is a glass chalkboard pumped full of light. It’s for recording video lecture topics. You face toward your viewers, and your writing glows in front of you.
Using the lightboard is like drawing on a traditional whiteboard, except you face your students and directly annotate images, and slides, much like on an over-head projector. Because lightboard employs a familiar teaching method (writing on a board), the learning curve for instructors is fairly flat. The benefit of the lightboard technology is that it allows for easy flow of ideas and concepts on a large surface giving students a different perspective on learning.
