In 2015, the right combination of factors came together for us to build a Lightboard at Vancouver Island University based on the open hardware specification originally designed at Northwestern University.

The Lightboard provides a familiar whiteboard like environment for faculty to use while creating educational videos. Aside from the novelty, what makes the Lightboard a useful tool and what does it really take to build one? 

We’ll share our Centre's history with supporting educational video and explain why and how we built our Lightboard. We'll show you pictures, examples we created with the lightboard and some pedagogically appropriate integrations into teaching and learning experiences.   

We’d also like to hear from you. How have you supported educational video on your campus and what other supports for creating video have you used?
