For the best experience on using Collaborate for online teaching, please follow the checklist below.
Things to think about generally:
☐ Use Chrome as your browser rather than Microsoft Edge or Safari If you can ☐ If you are using wi-fi, try to be as close to the router as possible, but ideally used a wired connection. ☐ Use a headset with a microphone for the best experience, rather than a built-in speakers & microphone.
☐ To minimise load on your Wi-fi connection, check what other people in the house are using the internet for at the time you are teaching.
Things to check every week:
☐ Update your browser so that it is using the latest version ☐ Clear your cache in your browser. (This fixes certain problems)
Things to check every day:
☐ Reboot your device every morning
Things to check before your session:
☐ Reboot your device every morning ☐ Close any streaming services (such as YouTube, Netflix) before joining a session. ☐ Make sure you arrive in plenty of time to check all the hardware works
