In online and distance learning we often hear complaints from students about the lack of engagement and interaction.  A simple way to add teacher presence is to create a “talking head” style video, but these can lack visual interest. A relatively new way to merge the benefits of a face-to-face conversation feel, with the hand drawn support from the instructor is to use a light board. Light boards are situated between the instructor and camera, allowing the instructor to teach in the traditional way as if they had a white board, but still face the audience via the camera.

We will present various ways of building a light board, including the gear and materials needed. We will demo techniques to create a light board video, and discuss the pedagogical benefits of this type of instruction. Participants will be able get their “hands on” the pens and try out the light board for themselves.

Topics covered include: lighting setups, camera gear, markers, production planning, and hosting of finished videos.
