Lecture Rewind allows students enrolled in your course to follow the slide/whiteboard content via a browser on their personal devices. This can offer a better view of what is being presented in the room and allow the students to magnify the content. As an additional feature, the students can independently control the content being viewed on their personal device (projector content – slides or document camera, whiteboard) and rewind to see material that has been presented during that class period.
