Recommendations on how to make the best use of videoconferencing

  • Preparation is absolutely the key priority.
  • Trialling the software and hardware in advance is very helpful.
  • Videoconferencing works best when students are the same age at both ends. Mismatches in ages of two years or more, can create a more stilted and awkward interaction at first.
  • Videoconferencing improves with practice. Students will be more confident with presenting material and technical issues that have become apparent in the first round, such as room and equipment set-up problems that can be avoided or minimised.
