15 Best Webcams for Zoom Dance Classes

-

Remote learning has made the use of webcams prevalent, as having a good webcam is essential in the continuity of classes for students through virtual meetings like Zoom. Dance classes, in particular, can be more effective with a webcam because of the advanced features they have, such as a higher video resolution, auto-tracking, and panning.

While some laptops and computer monitors come with a built-in webcam, some do not. Laptops that come with a built-in webcam may not provide certain improved features that an external webcam will offer, and as such, an external webcam is recommended for zoom dance classes
