Lightboards help faculty transition from using chalkboards in face-to-face classrooms to publishing the same lectures online using digital video.
By using a piece of glass instead of a chalkboard and luminescent ink instead of chalk, the traditional chalkboard has been re-imagined for a new era and is known as a Lightboard. Originally invented by Michael Peshkin at Northwestern University, the current model housed at Georgia Southern was created by our own team of technology experts.
Watch a Demonstration
Dr. Peter Rogers, Department of Civil Engineering & Construction Management
Simulates face-to-face teaching methods
Engages and captures students’ attention with eye contact and gestures
Presents your content to students in a way that is natural and familiar
Ideal for STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), but appropriate for any discipline using symbols, drawings, equations, formulas, illustrations, and diagrams to explain complex processes.
MDC staff will show you how to use the board and will record your session.
COL staff will assist you with editing and publishing videos. You should expect to spend a significant amount of time selecting which portions of the original files to use in the final product and which to discard.

The Lightboard at Georgia Southern is a collaborative venture between The Center for Online Learning, Information Technology Services, The Multimedia Development Center and Drs.Jeff & Jessica Orvis of the Chemistry Department.
