How to use the Lightboard at Lee College


Hi welcome to the instruction page for the Looking Glass at Lee College. You will need a high capacity, 16GB or more USB drive in order to record material from the Looking Glass. Please bring an unused USB drive or one that you are able to format when you meet at the Looking Glass. Training will take ten minutes and from there you are ready to record. Make sure you also bring any Word documents or PowerPoints you wish to use on the USB, as well.

The Looking Glass is very easy to use. After a few minutes of instruction, you'll be good to go. Just remember your USB drive.

Note: The campus and Looking Glass will only be available this week on Wednesday and Thursday, until further notice. So you can only book appointments for this Wednesday and Thursday.  Will Mayer will meet you onsite at the ATC 1st Floor/Library for the appointment.


You can book an appointment to use the Looking Glass HERE.
