Since online teaching does not allow the teachers and students to be in the same room, the environment itself does not matter much comparing to standard classroom teaching styles, however to ensure the quality of online teaching there are some different factors to be considered.
Ensuring a calm and tranquil offline environment
- Make sure to choose an environment that has not too much noise and if possible not too much color. This helps your students in focusing on the lecture and not the surroundings. It is always preferred to choose a light background color with clean and calm environment as the background of the teacher.
- If you need a board to write or draw on, the videochat has a Whiteboard feature, that the teachers can use to draw, write, insert pictures etc.
- Teaching for a public place such as coffee shop, restaurant or even library could create such background noises that could ruin the whole online learning experience for students, not to mention the internet connection speed that could be overloaded at such places.
Because of the aforementioned reasons, we don't recommend to teach from a public place.
