Hardware for recording video

You may need some hardware other than just the built in options on a laptop/chromebook for recording the audio and video of the teacher (to get better quality audio, and better framed video)
Some systems that we know work well (these are all USB connected to a computer so would work with any online platform - Meet, Zoom, WebEx, etc).  Other systems may also work (check reviews), these ones we know about.
