Connection to Carleton
Religion Professor Sonja Anderson posted on a Carleton buy and sell email list advertising unused chalkboard contact paper. After questions about her teaching set up for remote teaching, she sent another message describing how she set up her teaching station, along with an image of it.
Partial email text: "Several people have asked about the real chalkboard I bought for teaching from home. I bought this one (48"x36") on Amazon, though it's now sold out. Photo attached of how I set it up in my spare room. Key furniture was a milk crate, two tables, and two lamps positioned at my 9 o'clock and 2 o'clock. Used Apple AirPods (bought with PDA) for sound and mic. I had no problems with chalkboard glare, but I can't speak to WHITE boards. I did all class sessions live on Zoom but set them to record automatically and store in Panopto for students who were absent."
