Microphones improve learning for all
We’ve learned from our rollout of lecture recording that the best quality and most accessible recordings are produced when the most suitable microphones are used.
Whether you have a loud voice or small group, all microphones will pick up only the closest speaker.
Lapel mics work best for presenters, handheld mics and Catchboxes work best for audience interaction.
In the largest teaching spaces, there will be a throwable microphone called a Catchbox. Some rooms are equipped with handheld microphones. In rooms without Catchbox or a handheld microphone, you should repeat questions to ensure they are picked up on the recording.
