Learning Glass

Setting up your Learning Glass Canvas Account, for the First time user.

What is the Learning Glass?

The Learning Glass is simply a large piece of glass, ringed by LED lights that shine into the glass.
When a fluorescent marker is applied to the surface, the ink lights up, and stands out from the background. 
This is recorded using Kaltura Capture and then uploaded to your My Media, for use in Canvas.

Why would I use the Learning Glass?

It's easy. It's natural.
It uses the traditional skill of writing on a white board, and helps to overcome the unease of being in front of a camera. It also helps to communicate in a direct and natural way.

The interaction with the Learning Glass is natural and students like it because they are watching a real person talking to them, while getting visual and textual reinforcement. 

You can see an example of the Learning Glass by watching The Learning Glass @ UW-Stout
