Technology Considerations

Proactive Steps to Improve Performance

  • Use a wired ethernet connection and turn off WiFi on your computer, if possible. By using a hardwired connection, this can minimize interruptions with slow WiFi speeds and other connectivity issues.

  • Quit any unnecessary applications you don’t need open during your class. Having too many applications open can slow down your computer.

  • Close any unnecessary tabs in your web browser for an easier experience managing tabs and windows. Having too many tabs open can slow down your computer.

  • Be ready to join the meeting 5 minutes early to help troubleshoot any issues.

  • Turn your video off if you receive messages saying you have a poor connection. You can also ask participants to turn off video to help ease the burden on the connection.

  • Always have the dial-in number for your session available. If for some reason you lose your internet connection, dialing in on the phone will connect you to your class so you can continue your lecture.

  • If you are in a noisy environment, consider using headphones or a headset microphone for your audio.
