Do you use online lectures or tutorials? Do you like writing on a board? Do you like facing your students & audience?

If so, a lightboard might be a good tool for you!

Clemson Online is working to help faculty transform their online lectures and tutorials through the use of a lightboard. This means helping faculty produce high-quality videos of their lectures and demonstrations. According to Peter West in an article for eSchool News, a lightboard "allows students to get an enhanced experience with a more personal connection between the student and the teacher" (2014). 

Clemson Online currently maintains and supports 2 lightboard studios:

  • Clemson Online Headquarters, Pendleton, SC
  • Sirrine Hall 374H, Clemson University Campus

Instructors interested in lightboard recordings work directly with a Clemson Online Digital Learning Strategist to plan and schedule recordings.

Lightboard Recordings work well for:

  • Flipped Model classes
  • Supplemental Material
  • Reviewing Material
  • Deeper Explanations
  • Planned or Unplanned Event Class Cancellations

There is no cost for Lightboard Productions for Clemson University Instructors working with a Clemson Online DLS in a for-credit course. For those working on a non-credit or extension course, please see the pricing guide. Please contact Clemson Online to check availability and/or a quote.
