Virtual Symposium

Virtual Presentation Schedule

Wiggins Memorial Library invites you to participate in our 8th Annual Academic Symposium through our Virtual Symposium. The Virtual Symposium provides a unique opportunity for our online & extended campus students to share their research with the Campbell community. After last year's successful pilot for our online community, we are pleased to extend the invitation to participate in this year's Virtual Symposium to our extended campuses.

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 Tuesday, March 27, 2018, 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.

Instructors must nominate student work by Sunday, February 25, 2018. Students will have until Wednesday, March 21, 2018 to create 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

Join us on Monday, March 5, 2018 for our virtual workshop on recording a video presentation. We will provide an overview of how to use VoiceThread, PowerPoint, and Screencast-O-Matic to record a video presentation.

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. Creating a virtual presentation is easy! Check out our tips on recording a virtual presentation, and remember that the library and Academic Computing are here to help.
