How to fix your internet connection for a smooth lesson in the Skillings

If you find that your connection is poor before a lesson or if your lesson gets repeatedly interrupted due to the connection issues, it’s time to fix your network.

Here are some tips to speed up your internet:

  1. Make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi or a cable internet network, not to your mobile internet.
  2. Move closer to your router. If this doesn’t help, try restarting your router.
  3. If connection issues continue, you may try restarting your computer as well.
  4. Close other apps or tabs in your browser that might be using internet bandwidth.
  5. If you are downloading files, pause the download.
  6. Connect with an ethernet cable if you have one. Read more about how to set up your ethernet connection here.
  7. If none of the above options help, try switching off your video and complete the Skillings lesson with only your audio on. This won’t guarantee a high quality lesson experience, but it will help you stay connected with your student.
  8. Finally, to make sure your future lessons on Skillings are smooth and your students stay satisfied, contact your Internet service provider for a more detailed diagnosis of your network.
  9. One last tip: if you plan to give lessons from a public space or a café, check that they have a strong internet connection plenty of time before your lessons.
