The lightboard is a glass chalkboard for creating short video lectures. A presenter can face the viewer while writing or drawing on the board with fluorescent markers. The lightboard is newly available to all members of the Northwestern University community in an easy-to-use studio in Mudd Library. The lightboard is well suited to supplemental problems, flipped classroom lectures, or explanations of more complex topics. Students who learn both visually and aurally benefit from lightboard-based instruction, as do those who have trouble taking notes and listening simultaneously. All students appreciate that they can refer back to the video as needed. This demo will allow you to try a mini-lightboard, capture a video on your own cell phone, and take some material on best practices and use cases with you.
