The day is here, First Day of School! You have the outfit chosen, fresh supplies are all ready to go, your family chose the work station room for this semester and the Virtual Learning your child will receive. Everything is in place, or is it? The most important part of full or part time virtual learning like many schools have opted for with hybrid plans. Is your Internet connection and speed up to this task? Even if you are at the highest plan with your provider, will it be able to handle all the demand from so many users during the schoolday? There is a way to bulk this up and ensure your student has everything they need for a successful virtual home school experience. Oh, don’t forget the first day of school pics and posting them to social media for all to see!
What are the Common Issues with Remote Learning?
Online learning requires a streaming platform like Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc. This is where your classes will be held. Your teacher may be presenting their modules via webcam and the class can interact through video call as well.
Since remote learning goes through the internet, here are the most common issues that may happen:
- Other apps are using up your bandwidth. At some point there might not be enough left to send and receive the audio and video connection through your video call;
- Your Internet is slow. Some Internet connections just aren’t fast enough to send and receive schools streaming packets;
- Your packet loss rate is high. Internet connections are dropping network packets, so you can miss parts of the audio or video. This usually happens at the edge of the range on wireless connections like WiFi and cellular.
If this sounds familiar, then you need better Internet! And we have just the perfect tool (app) for this.
How to Fix Problems with Streaming?
Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that changes the way your devices connect to the Internet. Instead of just using one connection, Speedify allows your devices to connect to the Internet over 2 or more connections simultaneously. This instantly increases your connection bandwidth and reliability while providing a better and “dropout-free” remote learning experience. You will always have the best video and call quality without dropouts.
Speedify also monitors the quality of your Internet connections. When it detects that you’re on a bad Wi-Fi network or one of your connections gets slower or drops, it will automatically and seamlessly reroute the data through the other working connections. And it will begin using that connection again, once it’s available.
Improve your Streaming with Speedify!
In addition to delivering a faster Internet experience to your device, Speedify uses advanced technology to encrypt all the data sent to and from your device. Speedify keeps you safe from compromised Wi-Fi networks, and other threats. It was also designed to have zero impact on your devices battery life.
Speedify is also smart enough to try and send as much data as possible through Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet instead of over more expensive mobile data connections – saving you from potential overage fees from your carrier! Plus – you’ll have the peace of mind that your company’s sensitive data will not get into the wrong hands when delivering presentations.
Remote learning is new, to say the least, when you don’t have the most reliable Internet connection. But Speedify has your back when it comes to remote learning connection dropouts or connection issues in general!
