Environmental noise may negatively impact students who rely on residual hearing. Minimize background noise (e.g. by muting participants, locating yourself in an area with as little background noise as possible)
Use a functional microphone. Check your equipment before you begin.
Allow multiple ways of participating: typing in chat, speaking, using annotate, etc. Don’t arbitrarily restrict which may be used.
Only allow one speaker to speak at a time. Consider muting/ unmuting participants to facilitate this.
