The mattress is queen size and resting on two chairs. The chair I sit on is between them. This keeps the mattress in place and also curves it slightly, providing extra absorption of background noise from the side. I use a headset microphone to further reduce noise.
This worked fine for the first webinar in my new series "Engaging students in the online environment" in the Microlearning Series at Maskwacis Cultural College, Canada.
There are specially designed booths used for podcasting from offices, using sound absorbent foam. However, a simpler setup, with an acoustic panel of the type used for office partitions, curved and mounted on wheels might work well in a shared office.
