One of the first things experts had to focus on when preparing an online lecture was the audio quality. The next thing we investigated was image quality. They wanted to keep a connection with students even if there are over a hundred in our class. They considered being with the students important, and being with the students meant being in a video. Clearly, the quality provided by our notebook’s integrated camera left a lot of space for improvement. Dedicated webcams were a step up, but even the best one they tested, such as a Logitech StreamCam, was easily trumped by our smartphone’s camera.
