Lightboard application at Northwestern University.

Learning Glass Revisited – does the idea have application for Swarthmore?

I recently saw a video from Carleton College of a Lightboard/Learning Glass in use. The idea is that you can record lectures, or even do live remote classes writing on the glass and facing your audience. “The writing glows in front of you.” You write normally on the board and the system inverts the image so the audience sees things correctly.

If you can think of applications to your teaching or research I’d be interested in talking to you (mjones1). We hope to implement a version this summer as part of a remote teaching studio and would like to ensure we’re responding to your needs.
