GVSU Lightboard

What is it?

The lightboard is an innovative tool that allows instructors to write while still facing their students. When the markers write on the board they appear to glow, this allows faculty to create engaging visuals that will help drive home instruction. If you are interested in trying out the lightboard and want to schedule a recording email Justin Melick at 


The Build

Constructing the lightboard was a semester long process that involved following in the footsteps of other universities who have developed the concept as well adding in our own ideas and innovations. For more detailed information about our build process, please visit the GVSU Lightboard Build page!
