Light Up Your Lectures

Looking for a way to liven up your online lectures? Check out our Lightboard! In collaboration with the Multimedia Development Center, Instructional Designers at the CT2 can help you script, film, and edit lecture material you can use in your classes. The Lightboard uses treated glass and luminescent markers to allow you to face the camera while recording your lecture. Some of the advantages of using the Lightboard include:

  • personalizing online lectures by facing your students
  • engaging students’ attention with eye contact and gestures
  • presenting content in a way that is familiar to both you and your students
  • creating reusable content for your online, blended, or flipped courses
  • providing face-to-face students with lectures to review after class

Start your lightboard project now! Contact Stacy Kluge at skluge@georgiasouthern.edu.

And don't worry. You don't have to write backwards to use the Lightboard!
