Learning Glass

What is the Learning Glass?

The Learning Glass is a new technology that redefines how recorded lectures are presented.

Light board technology allows instructors to write lecture information on a clear “whiteboard” (the Learning Glass) while, at the same time, maintaining face-to-face contact with students.

Learning Glass technology presents a new and engaging way for instructors to relay note-based lecture material to their students. Rather than having to turn their backs to the class to write information, the instructor is able to maintain face to face contact with the audience watching the recorded video.

How Do I Use it?

The instructor, standing behind the Learning Glass, and facing a camera in the Learning Glass Recording Studio, presents the lecture to the camera, writing information on the Learning Glass as needed. The instructor will write normally, left to right, on the Learning Glass. The video is then flipped during the production process so that students watching the lecture video are seeing the written information properly.

There will be a media producer from the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Georgia present in the studio with the instructor to record the lecture. The Learning Glass studio has fees involved. For more information, contact Bobby Mitchell at CTL.

CTL Learning Glass Production Request

There will be a media producer from the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Georgia present in the studio with the instructor to record the lecture. There is no charge to record a lecture provided the instructor brings her or his own flash drive. A file (compatible with most Windows and Mac video editing software) will be created during the recording which the instructors can then edit on their own using programs (i.e. iMovie or Moviemaker).

Further editing of the lecture or in-house editing at CTL is available for an additional charge ($50/hour).  

Proper attire

To create the illusion of writing in air, the Learning Glass studio is based on a "limbo set" or all black. Therefore, it's important you don't wear dark colors. Also, avoid clothes with fine textures or patterns which could cause an unwanted moiré pattern with video cameras.

Location and Hours

The Learning Glass Studio is located in the South Plaza of the Center for Teaching & Learning, between the Psychology and Journalism buildings on the campus of the University of Georgia.

The Learning Glass Studio is available for use during normal business hours, Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm.
