What is Learning Glass?

NYIT Libraries provide access to tabletop learning glass. Learning glass is a new technology that allows instructors to record videos using a transparent whiteboard while maintaining face-to-face contact with students.

Learning glass is ideal for people who want to record videos for homework help, flipped classroom lessons, or just-in-time instruction.

How Does it Support Learning?

Effective use of learning glass can support learning in many ways:

  • Audio and video support effective working-memory capacity.
  • Videos make it easy for students to access the resource outside class time when they are studying or preparing for an exam.
  • Learners are able to control the pace by stopping or replaying a video.
  • Videos can address "muddy points" that surface among your students.


Learning glass can be used in a wide variety of ways. Here are 3 examples:

  1. To draw scientific diagrams and formulas.
  2. To annotate text and images.
  3. To make notes for any course.

Take a look at the video below. In addition, here are examples in physics and chemistry. Pablo Picasso painted on glass.
