Everything you need to know to get started and make the most of your Classhub account
Don’t panic! There are a few things which you can check to ensure everything is set up correctly.
Check your webcam and microphone have been allowed in the tuition feature
This also involves ensuring that you have the correct camera and microphone selected, particularly when using Firefox as your browser! Feel free to refer to our FAQ which will help you do this: How do I enable my microphone and camera?
Check it’s not your camera or microphone that has the issue
If possible, try to use your camera/microphone with another application. If it doesn’t work there either, then the problem is most likely to be an issue with the camera or microphone itself. You may be able to try using headphones instead of the inbuilt microphone in your computer or laptop for example if this turns out to be the issue.
If your camera and microphone are definitely working in other applications, try opening the session space in an incognito window, or switch internet browsers. If it works in an incognito window, you’ll have to clear your cookies and cache as they will be interfering with your permissions and the running of the tuition feature!
