Dearly invited speakers and presenters, please note that there are many such programs available and that we are in no way endorsing this particular product. It is, however, a powerful yet relatively simple tool that allows users to record the webcam video of them talking simultaneously and a video of whatever is happening on their computer screen, such as a PowerPoint presentation and Zoom.

PowerPoint Presentation

1. Record the presentation as a video consisting of presenter’s material and voice.

2. Use a quiet space, isolated from noises from pets, family members, and others, if possible

3. Please close unused applications and programs on your computers such as YouTube, Whatsapp Web, Music, and other distractions during the session, be mindful of anything visually distracting in the background.

4. Capture a single screen with the presentation/slides in full screen. Advance the slides as if you are presenting live.

5. Presenters are not obligated to show their faces (such as via webcam).

6. When recording, we recommend using an external microphone, such as on a headset. Using the built-in microphone of your webcam/laptop is also acceptable, only if presenters ensure minimal ambient noise.

7. With your presentation open, on the Slide Show tab, click Record Slide Show. You can choose whether to start on the current slide or from the beginning. Be careful of the Clear command as it deletes narrations or timings.

8. In the Record Slide Show box, check or clear the boxes for your recording preferences, then click Start Recording.

9. At the beginning and the end of the video, record a 10-second silent time (before the introduction and after the presentation). This will make it easier for us to edit and incorporate your recordings into the platform.

10. Introduce yourself for a maximum of 2 minute and present your paper during the next 7 minutes. In total, your recording (including silent time) should not exceed 9 minutes.

11. At the top left corner of the window is the Recording toolbar, which you can use to:

  • Go to the next slide:
  • Pause the recording:
  • Start over/re-record the current slide:

12. You can use your common Microsoft PowerPoint pointers (e.g. ink, eraser, or the laser pointer) as usual.

13. To end your recording, right-click the final slide and click End Show.

14.To save your recording as a video, toggle the menu and click Export. Choose the option Create a Video, opting for Full HD (1080p).

15. Do not forget to click the Use Recorded Timings and Narrations

16. Lastly, click the Create Video

17. Save your video in MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4) format and name the file using the format “Parallel sessions – your topic – Submission paper ID number – paper title”.

18. More detailed technical information regarding recording your PowerPoint presentation may be accessed at Support Office.

19. Before submitting, we recommend sending your video to your friends or colleagues for review and ask them to confirm that the slides are legible and that the audio is clear.

In total, your presentation (including silent time) should not exceed 9 minutes.

Enabling local recording
