Our newest addition to the Media Creation Lab is a Lightboard that allows you to face forward while writing — giving students a clear view of your written words, speaking, and gesturing. Instead of writing on the board with your back to the camera, you can face forward and not lose momentum as you diagram concepts or illustrations during your lecture. You are welcome to experiment with the Lightboard and any other technology in the Media Creation Lab and you can reserve time using our online form.
