Distinguished colleges and universities across the country, including Notre Dame, Columbia, Stamford and now Flathead Valley Community College, are adopting a new technology called Lightboard that is improving online learning. And while FVCC may seem like an outlier in that distinguished list, the Kalispell-based college is no less excited about offering classes using the new video system. The technology is part chalkboard and part projection screen that creates an online learning environment that simulates face-to-face teaching, according to Assistant Chemistry Professor David Long, who helped bring the system to FVCC. Prior to coming to college three years ago, Long taught at the University of Colorado and Montana State University.
