CITE Lite Board

Online explanation of mathematical and scientific concepts is a tough task to conquer. Screenshots, screen recordings and PowerPoints can sometimes work for accomplishing this, but the student then loses the connection with the Professor, and sometimes, a lot of the actual demonstration of the technical subject. Northwest Missouri State University is breaking through this barrier with the CITE LITEBoard.

Modeled after Michael Peshkin’s light board, Northwest Missouri State University decided to build a prototype to try with faculty and students first.  Peshkin is a professor with Northwestern University and developed the first light board as a way to record short video lectures using a chalkboard, without losing connection with the students. The Learning & Teaching Center at Northwest Missouri State University felt the same way, and decided to build a small version to try out before building a larger version of the board.
