Recommendations to Your Classroom

HD Webcam

A camera with a resolution of at least 2 megapixels is considered high-quality and well-functioning. Simply put, the better camera, the more clearly students can see you.

Background

Parents and students love a professional and educational background. Having a bright and fun backdrop can attract and engage young students. We love vibrant colors, especially our orange, Teacher Tangerine.

Headset, with a Microphone

A comfortable noise-cancelling headset will make your teaching more enjoyable. A nice crisp sound will help students hear you better as well. Remember, for the most part, they try to repeat after you.

Lighting

Get that spotlight ready! Bright, happy spaces lead to bright, happy learners. We recommend a full-size selfie ring or clip-on selfie rings to eliminate shadows on your face.
