If other classmates say that your webcam quality is poor, please check the following: 

  • Check to see if your CPU is struggling to keep up with the webcam and other applications. Use Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then click Task Manager on the screen) on PC and Activity Monitor on Mac to identify the applications and/or browser tabs that are using a high percentage of CPU. Close them down to reclaim CPU resources for you computer. 
  • Check your upload speed with this website's service to ensure it meets the required bandwidth speed for your session. Please refer to this article when calculating the bandwidth needed for a Virtual Classroom meeting.
