Tori Types Thoughts
Tori's very average blog
Last Student Salon Nostalgia
I can't tell you how many think tanks I've been a part of around best practices around video conferencing/teaching/communication due to COVID-19. I've become intimately familiar with Google Hangouts, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Facebook Live (and even revisited that old legacy, Skype). I have tested Bluetooth mics, headsets, lapel mics (which are also Bluetooth mics, but let me be dramatic), podcasting gear, lenses, webcams, light arrays, speakers, a mini soundboard, and several different types of screens and how they all interact. I've downloaded a bazillion apps. Let me tell you the lesson I've learned.
The audio and visual quality of video calls and classes just sucks. Period.
Well, unless you're rich OR and/or have access to professional AV equipment and a team of people who know what buttons to push and when to push them. :-)
