Try using Lightboard for live or recorded video instruction

Posted on: September 3, 2021

Why use a Lightboard? If you have used a whiteboard during a video lecture, you may know it’s hard to get the writing to show up clearly on video, and even harder to maintain connection with your students when your back is turned. Fortunately, a Lightboard (available through JMU Libraries) gives your students a close-up view and allows you to keep facing the camera while you write.

How does it work? The Lightboard is a glass whiteboard that flips your image as well as your writing, so – good news – you don’t have to learn to write backwards!

How do I get access to it? Contact the Libraries’ Head of Media Production Services to request a time to use the Lightboard. The Lightboard is permanently located in our video production studio on the 5th floor of Rose Library. This soundproof room, equipped with studio lighting, is available for JMU faculty who want to create live or recorded lectures, with or without the Lightboard.
