Many instructors wish to film their lectures to free up time for in class activities, but run into roadblocks when they are unable to cleanly and elegantly record their writing on a whiteboard. From the issue of facing away from the camera to lighting and clarity problems, these barriers have long prevented many instructors from moving this kind of course content online.
The Lightboard solves this solution. It is a large piece of glass in a darkened room that provides enough lighting for your writing and drawings on the board to glow. You can easily move around the board while facing the camera, resulting in a modern, polished lecture video that can be reused for several years. Not only can you draw on the board, but you can also project onto the board PowerPoint slides or other graphics that can also be annotated.
