We are excited to announce that a Lightboard is now available at the FMC studios!  

What is a Lightboard you might ask

The FMC Lightboard is a tool for creating compelling, visually dynamic videos to help you effectively connect with your students. 

It is a large, 60″ crystal-clear glass board with internal LED lighting that makes your writing glow and “float” on screen, allowing you to write and draw while maintaining eye contact to deliver your message in a natural and engaging way. You stand behind the glass and write as you normally would on a whiteboard. The camera captures you from the front and automatically flips the writing  for your viewers.

Instructional videos created using the Lightboard are a great way to demonstrate complicated material, explain a concept in detail, or review key learning points that your students can watch and re-watch without the time constraints of scheduled class time. The Lightboard’s low-tech approach makes it easy to enhance your pre-recorded mini lectures, transforming a traditional voice-over-Powerpoint video into a dynamic media learning experience.  

Visit our Lightboard page to learn more about creating engaging and immersive instructional videos with the new FMC Lightboard.   

We invite you to schedule a personalized consultation, book a studio, attend a workshop or simply drop-in to our studios in Kidder Hall 100 on the Corvallis campus for a quick tour to learn more about how FMC can help you use media.
