Poly Blackwire 3325

(Redirected from USB Headset)

A headset with earphones and microphone that would connect to your laptop via a USB cable. This option would allow you to simultaneously provide clear audio to your classroom and any remote students who are connected with Zoom or Google Meet. The earphones would also ensure that remote conversations are clearly heard by the instructor. A headset would be a great choice for those wanting to record lectures, screencasts, and Powerpoint presentations to post in Moodle.
