Instructions for Pre-Recorded Presentations

We recommend a length of 10-15 minutes for pre-recorded presentations. You will need to send us a link to your video (not the video itself) using this link. So that your video is accessible to all participants (in different countries), we recommend using Wistia

Videos should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides along with audio of the spoken presentation. Optionally, videos may contain a shot of the speaker’s head for increased engagement (this shot should be thumbnail-sized and overlaid on the slide images). Many presentation software tools allow recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files. Please see the notes below for detailed instructions for PowerPoint. 

  1. Recording a Pre-Recorded Presentation in PowerPoint
    Follow these instructions to add audio (and optionally video) to your slides.
    Follow these instructions to generate an .mp4 file from your slides and audio/video.
    Alternatively, you can follow this video tutorial which goes through both of these steps. 
  2. Uploading a Pre-Recorded Presentation to Wistia
    Note: You should not use YouTube or Vimeo, as participants from some countries will be unable to watch your video.
  3. Send us the link to your video using this form.

Tips for recording videos

•    Use as quiet an area as possible.
•    Avoid areas that have echo.
•    Rooms should be fairly small.
•    Sound dampening can be done with carpeting, curtains, furniture.
•    Hardline internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, use a strong Wi-Fi connection.
•    Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”. Avoid using your device's default built-in microphone.
•    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.
