Best Practices for DLP Classrooms
Turn off any potential distractions such as music and video streaming services. You may also consider deleting or hiding bookmarked pages in your web browser if you’ll be screen sharing, as they can be viewed by meeting participants. Lastly, you should consider any time zone differences that could make the meeting start time difficult for some participants.
Test Your Audio and Video
Test your audio and video devices (speakers, microphone, camera) and mute all notifications that may serve as a distraction during the meeting.
Discuss Background Noise
Before your meeting begins, discuss with your students that the microphones pick up noise, so side conversations should be kept at a minimum.
Have All Documents and Assets Ready
Remember to have any slideshows, documents, or videos that you will need during the DLP meeting ready at hand. It's a good idea to queue up each of the documents on your computer as well.
Send Documents to Participants via Email
Before your meeting begins, send meeting documents to participants via email. This way, attendees can prepare and have the documents at their fingertips during the meeting. This works especially well if your meeting is a mix of in-person attendees and remote attendees. You may share hard copies with the in-person attendees, so it's ideal to email the documents to the remote attendees as well.
Arrive to DLP Room Early
Arriving a few minutes early before your meeting start time is ideal. This is to make sure the audio and video are working correctly and that the remote classroom is connected.
