Lightboards & You

Lightboards can also display figures to be marked up.
Lightboards can also display figures to be marked up.

If there is anything that makes me happy, it is when a new tech item actually fits into how education properly functions.  Last week, we finally pulled the trigger and ordered the manufacture of a Lightboard from the SoMAS Ocean Instrument Laboratory.

This is why a Lightboard is so awesome… it lets an instructor do what they already are great at… write on a surface (traditionally a chalk board or a white board) while explaining concepts, but facing towards the students. The reason that this works, is because we are going to record this to video – not teach in front of a live audience.  That way, you can point the camera into a mirror, or flip the video in post-production so that it is readable to the audience.

 

Need to record video?

You have a few options for this.  You can reserve a room that has SBCapture built in, and let us know the schedule so I can setup the recording.  You need to use a mic when recording, so talk to the AV desk if you are unsure about that part.

You can record your lecture with a camera (or ipad/iphone), and get me the recording afterwards and I can publish it to your course. I have some courses that drop off camcorders and others that share files with me via Google Drive.  I even have one instructor that sends me the recordings created when using Doceri.

You can use personal capture at home or in the office to record them at your leisure and send the recordings to blackboard afterwards for all of your students to watch. Personal Capture records everything showing on your screen, video from your webcam and audio from a mic. Tell us about your recordings so that we can hook in the publishing options.

Coming Soon: One Button Studio.  A physical location, where students and instructors can go and with the push of a single button start recording in a well equipped mini studio.
