It is essentially a large glass surface that he can write and draw on as he speaks face to face with students, as opposed to using a chalkboard with his back to them. It is specifically lit and mounted so content easily stands out against a black background. The video image is flipped horizontally so the symbols and text are not backwords. The system will also allow computer data, photos or pages to share space on the screen with hand-written or drawn content. In the image shown, professor Taub can see the large display screen as it records his teaching efforts.
