Lightboard Room

What is the Lightboard?

As a GRCC faculty or staff member, you have access to record instructional content in our lightboard room located in 140 LRC.

The Lightboard allows you to face your viewers as you record your content, and whatever you write on the lightboard will glow in front of you and your intended audience. You can even use it in conjunction with PowerPoint.

Schedule an appointment

Visit Distance Learning's Lightboard page to schedule an appointment in the Lightboard Room, watch how-to videos or see examples of others using the Lightboard.

If you need help learning how to use the Lightboard, IT Media staff can assist you.
