Wiggins Memorial Library invites you to participate in our 7th Annual Academic Symposium through our Virtual Symposium. The Virtual Symposium provides a unique opportunity for our online students to share their research with the Campbell community. The Virtual Symposium is a pilot for our online community, with the hopes of expanding the program to Campbell's extended campuses; students enrolled in our extended campuses are invited to participate in the in-person Academic Symposium.

To participate in the Virtual Symposium, students must be nominated by a professor. If accepted, students will record a presentation to be shared at the Academic Symposium on Thursday, March 30, 2017, and hosted online for the broader Campbell community. This enhances the Symposium experience for in-person attendees, while allowing online students to share their research and gain valuable experience in synthesizing and presenting ideas virtually. Judges will evaluate virtual presentations, and student presenters are eligible for awards for outstanding work.

Additionally, some in-person presentations will be recorded and made available online to share the work of on-campus students with Campbell’s online community.

If you would like to participate in the 2017 Virtual Symposium, consult with the professor who assigned the project you want to present. Your professor must nominate your work by Sunday, February 26, 2017. You will have until Sunday, March 26, 2017 to adapt your assignment into a virtual presentation. The library and Academic Computing are here to help coach students through the process of creating a virtual presentation.

Recording a Virtual Presentation

There are many options available to you to create a virtual presentation. We’ve listed a few of them, below.

'Creating a Video Presentation' Workshop

Thank you to those who joined us on Monday, March 6, 2017 for our virtual workshop on recording a video presentation. We provided an overview of how to use VoiceThread, PowerPoint, and Screencast-O-Matic to record a video presentation. Couldn't make it? Watch the recording.

You may also find this recording of the in-person Symposium workshop, "Creating an Engaging Oral Presentation" helpful. Watch the recording.

Presentation Guidelines

Judges will evaluate virtual presentations, and awards will be given for outstanding work. Recorded presentations should be roughly 15 minutes long and saved as one of the following video file formats: FLV, F4V, AVI, MP4, MOV, or 3GP; or, hosted on the internet through a website like YouTube, Vimeo, or Screencast.
