Preparing your pre-recorded presentation

Pre-recording Software

The easiest way to create the video for upload when using Power Point is to create a voice over PowerPoint.

You may simply record yourself narrating your PowerPoint. You may incorporate a video or animation. All receivable academic formats are allowed as long as you respect the allocated time (7 minutes presentations in free paper sessions, 15 minutes presentations in other sessions). You can use the software or application of your choice to prerecord your presentation. Please find some suggestions and guidelines by clicking on the following links:

  • More information can be found at: PowerPoint or HERE
  • Convert the voice over PowerPoint to MP4. More information can be found HERE

As an alternative there are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation. In this method, you can show your face through the web cam if you would like and display your slides as you talk. You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording, and your final file is in the MP4 format. Here are some links to instructions on recording a meeting on common platforms:

Audio/Video File requirements

  • All final files must be in MP4 Format
