Video presentation guidelines/top tips

When completing your presentation please ensure you consider the following:

  • Video’s that are too long are likely to lose the interest of the viewer, 10 mins is the max length, if longer than this you will be required to edit the presentation to the required length
  • Try to make the video as interesting as possible, things like incorporating slides, recording in your lab/workspace, different backgrounds, demonstrations etc will ensure the engagement and attention of the audience
  • If you are showing figures or digital drawings, please ensure they are of a high enough quality to be readable on screen
  • If you include yourself in the pre-recording, try to talk into the camera as if talking to the audience, looking down or away too much will lose their attention or distract them from what you are saying
  • Present the relevant information in the clearest way possible. Practise what you are going to say or have bullet points on note cards so you don’t go off track
  • All presentations must NOT contain any inappropriate content including but not limited to language and imagery. Anything uploaded that contains anything deemed inappropriate will be removed without warning and your paper will not be published
  • Videos should be in file format mp4.
