Lighting: The lighting should be bright enough to see tutor’s expression clearly.
Camera setting: The tutor's image should appear in the middle of the screen showing the tutors from the upper chest and above.
Teaching background: The tutor's background needs to be neat, professional and child-friendly. Cartoon posters, ALO7-approved maps, the alphabet, emoji stickers, colorful curtains, and/or holiday decorations are recommended. Manycam can be used if it’s convenient. The purpose of requiring an engaging background is to show the students and parents that the tutors made efforts to make the online classroom children-friendly. Anything unprofessional or unrelated to online classes are not allowed, including but not limited to closets, cabinets, doors and bare walls. The partner schools, parents, and students are our clients and, therefore, every effort should be made to make them feel comfortable and excited to learn.
