The lightboard, or “learning glass,” as it’s sometimes known, is essentially a piece of glass with lights around the border that point inward, allowing content drawn directly on the glass to be illuminated. The “teacher” in the videos will be behind the glass and drawing as they would on a normal chalkboard or whiteboard. However, because of the transparent glass, they’ll be learner-facing. The effectiveness of this style is well-documented. One of the best things about the lightboard is its simplicity, which give the end user the freedom to teach their subject in a more natural way.
