Engaging Students with Lightboard Videos

  1. Wednesday, April 5th, 20173:30pm - 4:45pm

If you're interested in creating instructional videos which involve writing, Lightboard may be a great solution. The Lightboard is a glass surface that lets you create videos of yourself writing or projecting graphics while facing your audience (click here for an example).This low tech, easy- to- use tool is ideal for faculty who wish to record videos for homework help repositories, flipped classroom lessons, or online courses.


During this workshop, we will discuss how to plan effective online videos, actively engage students when video content is assigned, and model Lightboard presentation techniques on a small 3’X5’ demonstration board. Todd McFall, Assistant Teaching Professor, Economics, will also share his tips and highlights from student video production experiences.


Because we don't have a lot of time together in the studio, we have prepared a few activities to be completed prior to our workshop. By getting this introductory information out of the way before our meeting, we will have more time for active, hands-on practice. Please go here to access the activities and instructions.


This workshop is restricted to Reynolda Campus faculty, and to 10 participants.
