There are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation.  In this method, you can show your face via webcam (if you’d like) and display your slides as you talk.

·      Resolution = maximum 720p HD.

Tips for recording:

1.   Use as quiet an area as possible

2.   Avoid areas that have echo

a.    Rooms should be fairly small

b.   Sound dampening with carpeting, curtains, furniture

3.   Hardline internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, a strong Wi-Fi connection

4.   Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”.  Avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.

5.   Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation.  Make adjustments if needed.

6.   Check your presentation.  The ECTC 2021 virtual conference is on-demand, not live, so you have the opportunity to review and re-record your presentation to ensure a high quality presentation.
