Cherly Malm's LITEBoard

Cherly Malm - LITEBoard

Dr. Cherly Malm, Associate Professor 
Math, Computer Science, & Information Systems

A new tool is available in the CITE Office in prototype called LITEBoard thanks to Merlin Miller, Director of Academic Computing.  During the summer, Merlin custom built a LITEBoard at the request of CITE.  This new technology provides a unique way for faculty to record short demonstrations, lectures, or explanations of course concepts and information.  Basically, the LITEBoard is a double pane of glass with an LED light shining from the top down.  Faculty are able to write on the glass facing the camera using dry erase florescent markers.  The camera use to record the video as the capability to digitally reverse the image so the writing appears correctly when the video is viewed.

Dr. Cheryl Malm, Associate Professor in the Math, Computer Science & Information Systems Department will be piloting the LITEBoard this fall for some of her math courses.  These recordings can be easily uploaded into the Northwest Cloud and then linked in Northwest Online.  This type of video recording allows students additional time to spend with historically difficult concepts that are explained during class.  The format of these presentations make it easier for the student to follow and it is more interesting to view.  They complement the flipped, blended, and online course sites.

If you are interested in trying out the LITEBoard, contact CITE at x-1532 or  We would be happy to give a demonstration of this new tool.
