The most important devices are the headset and the camera for those, who would like to teach or learn online. A headset is a crucial tool, because it makes sure that the participants hear each as the voice output will not disturb the microphone (won’t echo) and the background noises can be filtered out in a better way. Our suggestion is the Logitec C270 HD camera, however any other brand with similar specifications will do the job as well.
In case you already have a headset and webcam at home or there are built-on devices in your laptop, we recommend to not to invest in a new one immediately.
We only recommend the immediate purchase if you teach a subject which requires excellent sound quality (music) or the students should see sharp details (dance or any physical exercise).
We definitely recommend to our teachers to teach from PC or laptop instead of a netbook, tablet or mobile phone. Students can access classes from these devices, however we don’t recommend this mean of online teaching. By using a PC or laptop teachers have the opportunity to access every useful tool of the system and get the most out of your virtual school.
The bandwidth of the internet access is one of the most important aspects.
This is why we recommend the use of broadband internet (min. 1 Mbit/s upload rate). If the teacher wishes to teach through 3G or 4G internet access, it is possible, but only up to 3 students. This type of internet connection is not able to send the signals of the teacher to several students. This is why we recommend the fastest internet connection possible to teachers and students alike.
