A release form granting permission to host the presentation video online (to be accessed by the virtual conference attendees) must be uploaded alongside with the presentation video.

Video File Requirements

Please use the following guidelines to prepare your video:

*File format: mp4
*Minimum height: 480 pixels
*Video aspect ratio: 16:9

Recording Suggestions

There are many options to record your video. Zoom is a popular and easy to use option. You can create a meeting, share the screen (your slides), activate the camera of your laptop of computer and then press “record”. More information about this option can be found here:  Local recording – Zoom Help Center

Other options are Vimeo, Loom or the app Explain EDU for I-pad users.

General suggestions for recording and uploading your presentation

  • It is highly recommended to record the presenter’s face, but make sure the slides remain visible.
  • The required 16:9 aspect ratio works best with a 4:3 aspect radio of the slides because it allows enough room for a thumbnail of the speaker at the side of the slides.
  • Make sure to record the whole screen
  • Set a timer on your smartphone to keep track of your presentation time
  • Check the file size and make sure it is max. 100 MB. You can use a compression tool to reduce the size, for instance FreeConvert or HandBrake.
  • Start to upload in time. The video file may take a long time to transfer.
