Distance learning has become increasingly pervasive in both corporate America and at educational institutions.
Academic institutions are all adding programs to accommodate remote students and are now offering on-line degrees.
To save money, many corporations are remotely training branch office employees on the policies and procedures bringing distance learning to corporate workplaces.
Clear Audio Maintains Focus, Increases Comprehension, Reduces Fatigue
Many times the voice quality in remote learning environments is unintelligible. Poor sound quality makes it difficult for the student to understand the material presented, and reduces their active participation.
Our industry has made great strides to improve video quality during distance learning sessions, but crystal-clear audio is even more important to keep students’ focus, increase comprehension, and prevent classroom fatigue.
Typically, there’s no technical person on hand to monitor and support the remote learning session. Therefore, having an audio solution that is simple to use and easy to setup is key.

How to Choose Audio Devices for Distance Learning
Here are some tips to consider when choosing an audio product for distant learning:
Seek out an audio solution that provides superior audio pickup and speaker quality so users on both the near and far end of the room can hear every word.
Deploy a device that has full 360° coverage of audio capture, incorporates integrated acoustic echo cancellation, and supports full duplex audio to enhance comprehension and conversational flow.
Strong Speaker, External Connections
The speaker output on the device needs to be loud enough for the participants in the room to hear, or allows connections to external speakers to amplify the sound level in the room.
If bring your own device (BYOD) program is supported, make sure the audio conferencing device is software-agnostic and connects via standard PC, tablet or mobile communications channels.
For cloud based conferencing solutions, verify that the audio conferencing device supports multiple communication applications.
