Teach Online: Creating Lightboard Lectures


Nov. 9, 2018, 11am to 12:30pm

Office/Remote Location

The Office of Online Education, Room 101


Do your lectures often require symbols, diagrams, formulas, and/or annotations to help explain complex concepts? Explore using our lightboard studio for your online course development in this hands-on workshop.

Delivering online lectures with a lightboard allows an instructor to speak facing the camera at the same time they write on a transparent board. This presentation technique emulates the experience of a live lecture. At UNLV lightboard lectures have been used in online courses from STEM disciplines to foreign language disciplines.


Instructors completing this workshop will be able to:

  • Discuss the pros and cons of recording a lecture in the lightboard studio.

  • Prepare to record a lecture in the lightboard studio.

  • Apply best practices for lightboard presentations and lectures.
