Audio check before launching course?

Jan 13, 2012

Hi does anyone have an idea what would be the best way to let the learners check their audio levels before they start a course? I don't want them to go into the course and the sound is too loud/too quiet for them.

Hi Mike,

I had a similar situation. However, the group of learners I was dealing with needed instructions on how to adjust the audio. I built an engage interaction with the instructions and then inserted little video clips I created with Snagit to demonstrate how to adjust the volume. It was just for this one course and so far there has been no feedback on the course that the audio is too loud or too quiet, as we've gotten from this group of learners before.

Really great question Mike.  I had never really give this any thought but it is something to consider.  Especially if you have an environment with learners that each have their own PC/Laptop.  In an office, many folks have their sound cards set to mute for so long they forget about it.  The ideas presented here would be a fun way to get them to check it before kicking off the content.
