Pre-training Hygiene Checks

Get off to a strong start, and mesmerize the learners with your domain knowledge. This is possible only if you’re at ease, and not dealing with technical or other glitches. 

  1. Ensure that your device (Laptop / Desktop) is functioning properly

  2. Place the webcam (built-in or USB plug-in) at eye level for better engagement with the learners

  3. Use a good microphone and speak into the mic, to ensure high-quality audio output. If you’re not clearly audible, learner engagement will get hampered

  4. Join the training session 15 minutes early and run an audio-video check (mic and camera quality)

  5. Maintain a strong and stable Wi-Fi connection with a minimum of 20 MBps download speed and 2MBps upload speed

  6. StepUpwards provides you free, clean, and professional-looking virtual backdrop(s) to ensure you need not worry about what’s behind you. To achieve the best virtual backdrop results:

    1. Use a solid color background, preferably green

    2. Use a good quality camera

    3. Ensure uniform lighting and color

    4. Refrain from wearing clothing that match the color of the virtual background

  7. Ensure that the lighting is good and your face is clearly visible

  8. Position yourself in a closed room, away from background noise, disturbance, or distractions
