Are you set up for smooth learning online, or are your lessons plagued with issues like bad sound, bad visibility and Internet glitching?
With fall arriving and music lessons (and school) continuing online, it might be time time to solve some of those issues in order to lay the foundation a better learning experience, with less frustration due to technology. This guide is meant to help teachers, students and their parents to best use the equipment that they have, and also to make suggestions, should you wish to upgrade or supplement your equipment.
This two-page PDF "Tech Set Up Guide" covers set-up, equipment, Zoom settings, and Internet lag trouble-shooting suggestions. The microphone suggestions are for inexpensive but decent options, not deluxe options. The fact remains that any mic is a huge improvement over the computer mic! The guide also includes suggestions for optimizing your home set-up, in terms of organizing your room and getting the right camera angle.
This guide can be pinned to your wall, emailed to students, or used in any other way that is useful to you. You can post it, scribble on it, share it. It’s yours and I hope it is useful. Happy online learning and teaching!
