Glassboard

Description

Working a problem in an online video typically means materials created using screen capture tools such as Camtasia. Sometimes screen capture is the best answer, but it often isolates the instructor from the viewer, either only providing their narration or a limited presence through a picture-in-picture approach. Students have responded very positively to a more engaged instructor presence in these videos and research suggests that bringing the instructor into the video frame improves the effectiveness of the material. We are experimenting with tools such as the glass board to find better “visual recipes” that allow effective and easy video creation for online and hybrid courses.

  • Workout anything you want on the board without having to turn their back on your students.

  • Allows the students to still see the instructor speaking while he/she works out a problem on the board.
