    eGlass Shatters Distance Learning Barrier

    Illuminated Glass Board with a Built-In Camera
    Finally Restores Eye Contact to Learners

    Teachers across America are struggling to keep students engaged both online and in the classroom. Studies have shown that the loss of nonverbal cues and eye contact has a catastrophic impact on retention of information.

    The solution is eGlass, an illuminated transparent writing surface with a built-in camera that allows instructors to write on the screen while looking directly at the students, increasing eye engagement. It also connects to their laptop, projector or monitor and integrates with Zoom, Skype, Google Meet, etc. making it a clean, easy and engaging setup.

    “Engagement goes through the roof as soon as students are introduced to eGlass,” said Marcia Kish, a blended learning specialist and coach. “When we get them engaged, we get better test scores and kids want to come to class. This is truly a game changer.”

    eGlass accepts orders from the general public, it previously manufactured a limited run of 2,000 units after the device was unveiled in January – which sold out almost immediately. eGlass is available for orders from last month with special pricing for educators which brings the cost of the 35″ model below $1,999 for school districts. eGlass is great for sales too and will change the way business professionals use Zoom!

    In addition, feedback from both educators and learners who have already tried out eGlass has been unanimously positive. For example:

    • “As soon as I showed my kids eGlass, they all turned their cameras on. The kids were excited and engaged through the power of the eGlass system. When my principal saw it, he said every teacher needs to have this!” – Andrea Jahnke, art teacher from West Geauga High School in Chesterland, OH.
    • “eGlass is SO COOL. I totally blew my kids’ minds today!” – Delia Bush, 5th Grade teacher, Kenowa Hills Online Learning Academy, Grand Rapids, MI
    • “The new eGlass lightboard is amazing! Game changer for hybrid/remote learning AND Deaf Education” – Natasha Rausch, teacher at The Learning Center for the Deaf in Framingham, MA

    eGlass is available in two sizes – 35” and 50”. MSRP is $2,198 for the 35” and $3,298 for the 50” model. Special pricing for the education sector is available which brings the cost of the 35″ model below $1,999 for school districts.
