How to have the best experience when using VEDAMO Virtual Classroom? VEDAMO Virtual Classroom includes simultaneous video and audio connections between multiple users. To ensure the best experience for all participants in the VEDAMO Virtual Classroom follow these recommended steps:
For hosts and students:
- Find a quiet place. Finding an environment that will not disturb your presence in an online session will not only help you but the rest of the participants.
- Prepare yourself in a presentable way. You and everything and everyone around you will be visible on your camera.
- You can make sure you are ready for your virtual sessions by testing your system prior to any meetings you have by going to: https://www.vedamo.com/system.
- We highly suggest, if possible using a wired Ethernet connection. Wired connections present you with a more stable connection and ultimately improve your experience in the virtual classroom.
- If you are using WiFi and in order to improve or stabilize your connection we recommend:
- move as close to the router as possible. This will help your device receive a stronger and more stable Wi-Fi signal.
- If there are multiple devices (laptops, tablets, phones, etc.) connected to the same network, it is best to disconnect them from the network. Since all devices connected to the same network share the network’s connection resources (bandwidth), thus making the connection slower for all connected devices.
- Close all other browsers or tabs in the current browser or other running applications which use an internet connection – chat applications, download/torrent software, or other software solutions that may lower your internet connection speed.
- We strongly suggest using a headset. Using a headset will decrease the possibility of audio feedback and echo.
- The host can mute participants who are inducing audio distortion to the session either intentionally or because of connection issues.
- All participants must use the Media Player in the virtual classroom in order to play audio and video files. Hosts and Students should not play audio through computer speakers because their microphone may pick it up and play it in the virtual classroom session.
- Allow access to your microphone only when you are about to talk. If you are not using it, mute yourself in order not to interrupt others that want to take part in the conversation.
Recommendations for Teachers:
- Hosts (Teachers) should work from a laptop or desktop computer when coordinating a meeting. The host will find that a desktop or laptop computer provides a better experience than can be found on smaller mobile devices like iOS (iPad and iPhone) or Android devices.
- The Host should prepare any necessary files before opening a virtual classroom. Preparing files in advance guarantees that they will be ready when the participants join and allow the host to focus on managing the student’s experience or arrange the content for the sessions in Templates
- If the host thinks someone is having a bad influence on the overall performance of the virtual classroom because of audio-related issues they can lock their microphone, not allowing them to use it.
- Use the participants’ controls in the virtual classroom, in order to manage your student access to resources and behavior or even ban them if their behavior is inappropriate.
