Remote Online / Working Platform Guide 

Do not use smartphone. 

Advisable to use ethernet cable to connect laptop / tower computer directly to router for smooth connection. 

If you rely on WIFI connection, ensure no-one else / devices are connected to the router, please kindly ask them to disconnect themselves from the router for temporary measures. 

Remove any unwanted applications that are running in the background of your device. 

Minimise background setting that gives the device camera / webcam a clearer focus on the person than distorted backgrounds. i.e: avoid bookshelves, picture frames in background.
