Don’t make others resent your presence
QUBE is a “natural” environment so everyone can speak to everyone else. We are not restricted to text or only one person talking like WebEx.
You will need to be able to hear and speak to other people. For this you will need a headset. Everyone else will have one. If you choose to use the built-in mic or speakers (unless they have excellent noise cancellation) everyone else hears echoes and background noise … and it’s terrible for them!
How to check if they can hear you on QUBE:
No need to keep asking “Can you hear me?” like you do on a conference or skype call or other digital media – Just look at the icon next to your name to see if you can be heard.

IMPORTANT: As of Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina), Apple have made changes that have broken how many programs, including QUBE, work on Macs. We are working on fixing this as soon as we can, but in the meantime Mac users running Catalina or a later operating system should contact QUBE@PentacleTheVBS.com for alternative installation instructions
