Learning Glass

What is it?

Learning Glass is a video recording studio that allows instructors to record a video with drawn visuals, similar to presenting with a whiteboard, but without having your back to the camera. Some examples of content to be presented this way would be complex math formulas, diagrams, or flow charts.

Instructional Design Consultation

Before recording your first video you will meet with an instructional designer from the team here at Academic Technology. This short consultation will help you prepare your material for the most effective presentation in your Learning Glass recording. Consultations are between 30 minutes and an hour long, depending on what you wish to discuss and how complex your materials are.

Booking studio time

Learning Glass studio sessions are 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours long, depending on what content you wish to present. If you have never done a Learning Glass session before, you must complete an instructional design consultation before you are allowed to schedule studio time. The studio is available during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 4pm.
