Background Music in the Course or Silence?

Hi Everyone,

 

I wanted to know if it will be more of a distraction or will enhance the voice when background music is added throughout the course? Which will you prefer, background music with vocals or vocals only?

Definitely no background music unless it’s for the promo video.

I have yet to complete my first course, but as a course consumer, I can say that I won't take a course with background music. I find it distracts, interferes with comprehension, and adds nothing I find useful. I don't know why people use it with courses. 

As a consumer, I have a short attention span and adding music doesn't help.  I don't mind it used to indicate a transition to a new topic however.

Promo video --> Music may add value,

Lecture videos --> Music is a distraction

 

In my humble opinion
