VIPKID – Teaching On The Go: What I Use

Hello,

I thought I’d make a quick post to share what I use.  I’ve taught for a year and a half and 6088 classes as of today.  As of now, everything that I’ve used is still fully functional without any defects or issues.

Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 15.6-Inches Full HD Notebook (7th Gen Intel Core i5-7200U, GeForce 940MX, 8GB DDR4 SDRAM, 256GB SSD, Windows 10 Home), Obsidian Black

Price when purchased: $549.99

I see that the price is different from when I purchased this laptop.  They now have an 8th generation Intel i5 advertised as $599.99.  This laptop has been able to handle gaming (e.g. Fortnite), as well as video editing without any issues in terms of the processor or motherboard overheating.  This laptop boots up literally in less than 5 seconds.

 

Plantronics .Audio 355 Multimedia Headset

Price when purchased: $19.99

Bought it at best buy.  A bit cheaper on Amazon.  The microphone hinge is a bit loose, but everything is still in working order.

 

Sabrent Aluminum USB External Stereo Sound Adapter for Windows and Mac. Plug and play No drivers Needed. [Silver] (AU-EMAC)

Price when purchased: $7.99

Without this, I wouldn’t be able to use my headset.

 

Logitech HD Webcam C525, Portable HD 720p Video Calling with Autofocus

Price when purchased: $39.99

I highly recommend having an external webcam.  I love have the mobility and freedom of moving the camera around during class, whether I’m showing students the view from outside of my window (I live on the 11th floor) or other miscellaneous things.

If you have any questions about VIPKID I would be happy to answer them.  I’m not looking for referrals whatsoever.  I genuinely enjoy teaching and only stick to that.

Have a good day everyone!
