Created by Northwestern Engineering Professor, Michael Peshkin, Lightboard is a glass chalkboard that uses light to allow users to face viewers while writing and recording a lecture. The board is video taped in mirror reflection, giving users a quick and easy way to communicate technical subjects, equations, and sketches, all while engaging with the camera and the viewers.

The Lightboard feature is best used for supplemental problems, flipped classroom lectures, and explanations of more complex problems.


The Video Production Studio is located in the Mudd Building, second floor. It is within Mudd library, Room 2169 on the northeast corner of the library.
