Possible Issues With Online Group Lessons

Category: Online Lesson A/V

While Blink Lesson infrastructure can manage a large number of lesson participants, quality will be limited by everyone's bandwidth, device, and CPU limitations.

In an online group lesson, each participant "publishes" their own video and audio to the platform and "subscribes" to video and audio from other participants. Because each participant needs to download every other participant's audio and video, the quality will be limited by their bandwidth, device, and CPU.

Participants in a group lesson need a good enough connection to download all audio and video streams, and a device with a processor capable of decoding and displaying each video. A participant can theoretically have no issues with a one-on-one lesson but not be able to handle a group lesson, depending on these limitations.

If you experience issues in a group lesson, have participants who are not talking toggle off their video. This will greatly reduce the bandwidth and device power required.
