“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.”

Lightboard recordings allow you to work through your lecture much as you would at a traditional whiteboard. However, you are facing the camera rather than having your back turned and your gestures and gesticulations are captured as you create on-screen.
