Irwin Library will be closed this summer for HVAC updates. The Marjorie Rork Lightboard will reopen on August 1, 2022.

Utilizing the funds awarded from an Innovation Grant, the Lightboard Studio was installed in Irwin Library in February 2016.
This innovative technology offers a way to create videos that complement online or hybrid learning models as well as the “flipped” classroom model. It consists of a glass surface that works like a white board that is positioned between the instructor and the camera.
This set-up allows the instructor to face the camera while also writing on the transparent surface. Instructors can then illustrate complex concepts, formulas, diagrams or processes. It’s also possible to integrate a PowerPoint on the Lightboard for annotation. This form of content presentation allows students the opportunity to review information as needed for understanding.
