TIPS FOR RECORDING

  • Find a quiet and calm area in which to record your video.
  • Avoid areas (e.g., large rooms) that may create an echo. 
  • Use a good microphone - or headset with microphone - close to your mouth but avoid feedback or obscuring your face.
  • Hardline internet connection is recommended, but if unavailable, ensure a strong Wi-Fi connection.
  • Take test recordings of a few minutes and then review your sound and picture quality in MP4 format, and check the file size produced before recording your final paper presentation.  Adjust as needed.


Upload only videos you created yourself.  Do not include rips of movies, music, television, or any other third-party copyrighted material.
