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.
