Evening all. I'm a secondary teacher and I'll be doing live lessons via Zoom and/or Google Hangouts next term. I'll also be recording explicit teaching examples while at a whiteboard, for example. I'm after some recommendations for a USB or 3.5mm dedicated microphone to use for this purpose. I'd prefer something that sits on a desk rather than a lapel mic. I think a wired lapel mic will be too restrictive, but I'm open to the idea of a lapel mic if it will still work suitably while sitting on a desk a couple of metres from where I'm talking. Budget is up to $100. It'll be used with a Windows laptop. I'd also like it to be portable as I'll be expected to work from school until there is a wider lockdown. If it works with mobile devices too, that's a bonus.
I like the form factor and design of the Samson Go Mic (https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/samson-go-mic-usb-microph...) and am leaning that way at the moment. But it seems like quite old tech, eg mini USB. Other options are the Stadium Vegas (https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/stadium-vegas-usb-microph...) but it seems quite dated too and not as portable as the Samson.
I assume something like this wouldn't work with a laptop? https://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/rode-videomicro
Any other suggestions?
Edit: I'd love to hear some opinions on the Stadium Vegas since it seems to be pretty good value at jb hifi at the moment.
