The eGlass Story
Inspired by Dr. Matt Anderson's glass board learning system, eGlass is a bold innovation that dramatically enhances student engagement and information retention in class, distance or hybrid learning. Here's the story.
Dr. Matt Anderson is a professor of physics at San Diego State University. Anderson developed a transparent glass writing surface that could be lit and filmed to create a startlingly dramatic effect. Anderson used this innovation, initially dubbed Learning Glass, to captivate his international audience of online, hybrid and classroom learners.
Ji Shen attended one of Anderson's online classes called EM Waves, and was instantly hooked on Anderson's writing glass. In his words, the lecture felt like it raced by.
A successful innovator and entrepreneur, Shen saw an opportunity to integrate Anderson's Learning Glass with advanced digital imaging technologies he had developed for his HoverCam products over the past decade. The goal was to create a transparent lightboard and software system that was accessible and affordable to millions of educators.
Built on this vision, Matt and Ji forged a partnership and got to work. Today, 9 patents later, eGlass has launched.
eGlass is more than a tool. It's a new medium for communicating. For the first time, students can visually engage with their teacher while the teacher is writing on the board. Body gestures, eye contact, and subtle emotional cues are transmitted from teacher to student. Regardless if the student is distance learning on a screen, or in an auditorium with 200 other learners, the connection and engagement are immediate, and powerful.
Launched during the COVID pandemic, eGlass has gone on to acclaimed success in school systems embracing the new hybrid model of teaching, using 100% classroom teaching, or doing all teaching online. It's the evolution of the teaching model, and changes lives every day.
