If students opt-in, 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.
