What can you do to mitigate potential COVID-19 exposure while using classroom microphones? The Office of Information Technology recommends:
- Follow the Center for Disease Control’s cleaning and disinfecting guidelines. Specific cleaning information from the hardware manufacturers can found here - How should I clean my microphone and here - How do I clean a touchscreen.
- If utilizing the lapel microphone, discard the existing windscreen, gently wipe the microphone cartridge then replace it with your university-provided windscreen.
- Investigate headset microphones that will interface with lapel body packs found in a number of OIT-supported classrooms. For more information please contact the Classroom Technology Help Desk.
