Why Using Bluetooth Speakers in Live Classes is a Bad Idea?
If you have ever tried to stream music while teaching a class, it’s a nightmare! There are a couple of different factors at play here:
First, Bluetooth speakers don’t have as good a range as regular speakers (usually 10 feet, or 30 meters). This means that you need to physically be next to your students.
Second, streaming music over Bluetooth tends to drop connections a lot. This is especially true for newer Bluetooth speakers.
This might seem like a trivial problem, but it’s a huge one when you consider the number of students who come to our classes.
For instance, if we have 50 students in a class, the chances of getting good audio quality are almost zero.
Now, imagine having 50 students in a classroom while trying to teach. It’s just not a good situation. So, this is why we believe that streaming music through Bluetooth is probably not an option.
