Today I wanted to jump online for a few minutes to show you a little bit about how I manage lighting in my classroom.
I have a number of different lighting options in my office, and on the road, when I am working online. As the majority of my supplemental income is earned via telecommuting and is language learning based it is extremely important that the students be able to easily understand me as well as mimic me- which means they have to be able to see my face very well. If I want repeat students then I have to have decent lighting. Here are a few options, at various price levels I have tried so far:
soft box or a full size ring-light.
I have used a number of different options in the 2+ years I have been with VIPKid and the number one key is just to get rid of shadows and make sure that you are well lit. Anything that gets you to that end- whether it be one of the above options or just a table lamp with the shade removed and a daylight bulb installed, which I have done- will work.
Until Next Time,
