It’s a whole new world now.
Remote teaching and learning is the hybrid model that we are becoming accustomed to as we continue to combat COVID-19.
Each wave of the pandemic has taught all of us – professors, instructors, teachers, and coaches – how to pivot during these unprecedented times.
The LightBoard Depot Inc. arrived just in time as lockdowns, closures, and social distancing measures were put in place here at home and beyond.
While there is still no end in sight to the global pandemic, The LightBoard Depot Inc. is helping educators, business leaders, healthcare professionals, to name a few, and learners, all stay in the game.
The LightBoard Depot Inc. utilizes a webcam, tripod, and a piece of glass that allows the user to broadcast to an audience in a conference, seminar, or classroom setting. Showcasing Free Open-Source Software, The LightBoard Depot Inc. user can write, draw, and explain with ease as the technology flips the words around so an audience can understand. The technology also allows users to present videos, images, power-points and other documents.
The company has also just launched FLEX: 24×36 in size that will fit on just about any desk and it is easy to pack-up and take with you for road trips and business trips. Even better, while the FLEX is more compact, and easy to move around, it is also more affordable compared to the standard LightBoard version that was launched last fall. Both are ideal for teaching and coaching, however, FLEX will be a huge seller because of its compact design and flexibility in use.
The LightBoard FLEX retails for about $2,000 (CDN), while the standard version will cost you around $3,000 (CDN).
Many users are raving about the technology, saying it is one of the best investments they have made in a long time, especially during a global crisis.
Even more interesting, professionals in a number of industries are thrilled they bought a LightBoard instead of a new Laptop. Sure, Laptops are great for face-to-face communication, but they are limited when it comes to remote teaching.
The LightBord Depot Inc. takes remote teaching and learning to a whole new level, allowing users to teach from the comfort of their homes, cottages, or hotel rooms, while engaging their audiences from across town, or across the country, or anywhere in the world for that matter.
A high-end Laptop will run you about $2,000 to $3,000, so getting a LigthBoard makes practical sense. With this new technology, you can teach effectively and engage learners, just as if you would in a classroom setting. Simply put, teaching or coaching on a Laptop doesn’t cut it in a world where everyone wants to feel connected.
Stay connected and consider getting this new technology instead of a new computer that holds more limitations than strengths.
The LightBoard Depot Inc. are partnered with The Forge, an initiative built by McMaster University in Hamilton. The Forge is a business incubator funded by McMaster University, serving novel and scalable start-ups in the Hamilton, Greater Toronto Area and Niagara Regions.
The technology is being used by scores of notable higher-education institutions, businesses and organizations, including McMaster University and Mohawk College in Hamilton, Durham Deaf Services, Conestoga College in Kitchener, The Beanstalk Project, and Arts For A Better Tomorrow in Los Angeles. The LightBoard Depot Inc. is now getting big interest from business leaders and educators in Telemedicine, and corporations involved in commerce, banking, and healthcare.
