In this highly connected world, it is now easier than ever before to communicate across the globe. Applications like Skype for business, Zoom, Google Hangouts and Blue Jeans are now the new ‘norm’ for low-cost video conferencing. Simple cost effective video solutions are now available out of the box. These allow for higher quality video sharing in larger spaces as well as the critical part, which is audio echo cancellation (AEC). A properly designed system allows for students and teachers alike to be heard whether or not they have a big voice or a soft voice with automatic gain control. It's no secret that connecting kids to other cultures encourage learning, maturity and an understanding of a greater world.
