Show Notes:


We recorded this episode of TechTalk4Teachers using Microsoft Teams. Since the three of us were separated by hundreds of miles the audio quality is not as good as what you typically hear from a TechTalk4Teachers podcast. The compression algorithms reduce audio quality while trying to maintain a consistent connection with Teams. Overall, pretty amazing that we can still schedule a podcast recording in these extraordinary times of Stay at Home orders using our existing equipment that we already have at home.
