In the Lightboard studio this week! The Lightboard is a unique service for recording lectures and presentations. Combining the benefits of a live lecture, with the annotations you may make on a whiteboard into a single media asset. Maintain student engagement in your videos by drawing, diagramming or doodling your lessons, while simultaneously maintaining eye contact, and speaking directly to your audience.
Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to plan, play and produce their next lesson in this exciting new media format. Come out and try it yourself.
