"The Lightboard is a glass chalkboard pumped full of light. It's for recording video lecture topics. You face toward your viewers, and your writing glows in front of you. ... it's open source hardware."


Welcome to GRCC's Lightboard page. This is a collaborative effort of Media Technologies, the Center for Teaching Excellence and Distance Learning and Instructional Technologies.

How-To Videos

These videos will show you the Lightboard set-up that we have at GRCC. In addition to recording you and whatever you write on the Lightboard, you can also use PowerPoint slides to project graphics to write on such as an x- and y-axis for graphing, a diagram, and equations.

Scheduling Time

If it's you first time using the Lightboard, we're here to help! If you are comfortable using it, you can schedule your own appointment (you'll need to log in with your GRCC Google account).
