As an English teacher, distant learning can represent a real opportunity to develop certain skills, as reading & writing activities for example. Nonetheless activities involving oral interaction are sometimes complicated when everyone is left alone behind their screens. I have to say that the use of the HUE webcam has helped me a lot during my synchronous class. Students were able not only to read my lips, but also see my face and all these expressions that are totally part of interacting. I could also encourage them to switch on their cameras as they could see how friendlier and more pleasant it was for everyone if we could see each other. The quality of the built-in microphone is rather good, and the camera is very simple to use. I also appreciated the flexible neck to project A4 documents to students. For example, you take notes on what they say while they are speaking and then you can project your notes for a direct feedback.
