Recording a Virtual Presentation

Watch this video to gain some General Presentation Tips.

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, February 18, 2019 at 7:00pm EST 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.

Watch last year's recording. When viewing, we suggest opening the chat box by clicking on the purple double arrow in the bottom right corner.

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

Presentation Guidelines

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.
