Hours and location
Accessing the studio
When you arrive for your session, go to Classroom A (1070) on the first floor of Waldo Library for access to the Learning Glass Studio. Be sure to bring your Bronco Card with you.
During your studio time, a University Libraries staff member will be there to help you every step of the way, from set-up to recording. We’ll provide you with a file of your video after your studio session.
The Learning Glass Studio is available to all Western Michigan University faculty, instructors, staff and students.
Learning Glass tips
- Stick to one topic.
- Plan out your video ahead of time, so you know where to stand as you are drawing on the lightboard.
- Wear dark, solid-colored clothes, but avoid black.
- Don’t wear clothes that have text or logos. These will appear reversed in the video.
- Small mistakes that can be quickly erased are okay.
