Be sure there is a clear line of sight between your microphone and the beacon. Press the ON button to pair the microphone with the classroom equipment. When pairing, the green light on the microphone will rapidly blink, and then stop. The microphone will now be ready for use.

The microphone may be worn on a lanyard around the neck, or it may be clipped to clothing with the magnetic clip. The clip is recommended for best sound.

Students' audio will be picked up by the Tandberg microphone with clear plastic housing, located on the ceiling toward the front of the classroom.

Turn on the computer and log in.
