Thank you for considering presenting at our conference.
This information is for the PanSIG 2023 pre-recorded presentations only.
The video will be uploaded to our conference app platform. If you ask us to take down your video at any point, we will respect your request.
The video format and style is up to you, but there are some suggestions and recommendations below:
- Do not use copyright material within your video, unless you have explicit permission to use it.
- Do not include any identifying personal information of your students or other subjects of your research.
- Do not include any images of students or other research subjects without their explicit permission.
Here is the form for indicating your preferences and uploading your video:
Video Format and Style:
There are many ways to record presentations depending on your equipment, software, level of expertise and how much time you can spend preparing, recording and editing. There are many videos on YouTube explaining how.
Good sound is very important. Professional equipment will help, but it is essential to speak clearly and relatively close to the microphone, and make sure that your surroundings are quiet.
The simplest approach may be to record your voice over your presentation slides. For example it is possible to record your voice while playing your PowerPoint slides, and then save the file as a video file.
It may be more engaging if you include your face on the video. Some presentation recording software also records from your web camera and shows it in a bubble on the screen. For example loom.com allows you to switch between your webcam or your slides, and to move your webcam image around the screen. Another popular free option is the open source OBS (https://obsproject.com/). Other screen capture software is available, for example QuickTime on Mac. We've made a simple explanation on how to use Zoom to record your slideshow with your face included in the video.
The length of your video should be no longer than your allocated presentation length (between 20 and 25 minutes).
Recommendations when you are making video:
Include the JALT logo and PanSIG logo somewhere in some of your presentation slides.
Use 16:9 aspect ratio (this will be an option in your presentation slides set up.) If your settings allow, save as MP4 using AAC and H.264 video codec.
Have fun and we look forward to seeing your videos and presentations!
