Other required equipment
Webcam: Logitech webcam recommended. High frame rate is more important than high resolution.
Headset: Headphones or ear-buds, and a microphone (most webcams have built in mics). A headset with built-in mic is strongly recommended for an optimum live class experience. (Headsets are typically not required for Sign Language courses)
USB and analog headsets are both acceptable.
Choose a headset that is comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Headsets tend to have a short lifespan; so expensive headsets are not recommended.
