The Lightboard is a tried and tested tool that has been proven to be effective for teaching and learning. Due to the current pandemic, UBC Studios has created a tabletop bring home version of the lightboard for faculty and staff to use for their courses. Currently we are in the beta stages of the construction process, thus designs may not be perfect and will slightly change from board to board – however the general use is the same. Users will be asked to provide feedback in regards to their experience using the board. Loan of the board is on a first come first serve basis, and has a minimum loan duration of 2 weeks. Afterwards depending if there are other instructors on the waitlist, users will be notified to return the unit to campus for the next individual to use.

This beta kit comes with a tabletop lightboard, markers, clicker and a webcam as well as any mounting accessories needed. New users should utilize our plexiglass units instead of our regular glass for easier transportation and safety. Please use our contact form or send an email to to sign up! (Items that may be needed: an extension cord)
