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.
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.
