Recording your presentations

 

Paper presentations will be pre-recorded and submitted to the conference ahead of time. The virtual conference platform will be “live” on June 1. We ask that you submit your video to the platform between June 1 and June 10 so that attendees can view it before the conference. Detailed instructions for submitting videos will be emailed to you on June 1. 

 

Length: Your recorded presentation should be no more than 15 minutes in length.

 

Format: You will need to submit your presentation as a .mp4 file. (Also it cannot be larger than 1 gigabyte, but 15 minute videos are very rarely this large.) 

 

How to: There are lots of ways to do this with free or widely available software. The guide below lists several commonly used methods to create .mp4 files. 

If you can, please add closed captioning to your videos. Thank you.

Once you finish recording your presentation, check your email for the "speaker portal" instructions for uploading your video to the virtual site for the conference. After uploading your video, remember to mark this task as Complete in Pheedloop  (so we know to make it visible in the virtual conference platform).

 

Using Zoom:

Start a zoom meeting (with the presenter as the only participant). 

Share screen.

Select Closed Caption to add captioning to your video.

Click “record.”

Give the talk. 

End recording, end share screen and end the meeting. 

Find where the computer stores the recording – it will be probably be saved as either 

Windows: C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\Zoom or Mac: /Users/[Username]/Documents/Zoom

Using PowerPoint:

New for 2022 – if you have the latest PowerPoint, you will record your presentation through the “record” tab. The detailed instructions below show you how to show or hide your camera and background.

 

In the “record” tab, select start recording and a countdown will begin. To record narration for a specific slide, use the previous or next arrows. You can pause if needed, or select stop when you are finished. The “Retake” button allows you to re-record for each slide. When you’re done, select Export > Export Video. After you successfully export the video, you can view the video by selecting View and share video.

 

In older versions of PowerPoint, you can find these options under the “Slide show” tab. Full instructions are at:

For both Powerpoint and Keynote, files are saved as differently: Powerpoint saves as MPEG4 and Keynote as m4v. To convert your file to .mp4, use one of the free converters online such as https://cloudconvert.com/mpeg-to-mp4 or https://www.freeconvert.com/m4v-to-mp4

 

Using Keynote:

Keynote for Mac is very similar to powerpoint, and voice can be recorded similarly. You can find instructions here:

Using Google Slides:

While Google Slides allows you to add audio to individual slides, to record the entire presentation you may need a separate recording software. One option is Free Cam, which records your screen and voice over. The link is here: https://www.freescreenrecording.com/. The presentation will be recorded as a WMV file which can be converted to .mp4 using:

https://cloudconvert.com/wmv-to-mp4

or https://www.freeconvert.com/wmv-to-mp4 

 

Using Loom:

The free version of Loom allows you to record videos in 5-minute segments, so you would have to make several shorter videos. However, it is very easy to use – you can find complete instructions here: https://support.loom.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002236078-How-to-record-a-presentation-with-Loom- Your files will be exported as .mp4 files. If you’d like to stitch the separate videos together, you can use free file joiner sites such as https://clideo.com/merge-mp4 to join the files.
