Hours and location

Accessing the studio

When you arrive for your session, check in at the Tech Lab desk on the lower level 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.
