Zoom will allow you to record video of yourself and/or video of your computer screen.

1.  Open Zoom, click the “New Meeting” button and a Zoom meeting room will open.

2.  Click the “Test speaker and microphone” link below the “Join with Computer Audio” button to make sure your webcam and microphone have connected properly. When they are working, click the “Join with Computer Audio” button. Record your presentation.

3.  Record your presentation. To share your screen, click the green “Share” button in the control bar. When you’re ready to start, click the “Record” button at the bottom of the meeting window. Select “Record to Cloud” to save your video or “Record on this Computer” to record only to your hard drive. If you are planning to edit your video, select “Record on this Computer.” When Zoom is recording you will see a small red dot at the top left of the meeting window.

4.  When you are done recording, click the “Stop Recording” button in the control bar and then click “End Meeting” at the bottom right.

Group Recording with Zoom

If your group is available to record together at the same time, you can use Zoom to record as described above. Zoom allows you to record a presentation with multiple people at different locations. Whoever starts the Zoom meeting room will record the presentation. For a group, one person will create a Zoom meeting room and then invite the rest of the participants. Invite your co-presenters by clicking the “Invite” button on the control bar at the bottom of the Zoom window and sending them an email.

Recording tips
  • Rehearse your presentation to smooth the transitions between presenters.
  • Decide if each person will be sharing their own screen for their portion or if one person will be responsible for sharing the presentation.
  • If someone is going to be editing the video, that person should create the Zoom room and record the presentation to their computer for easier editing. Also, the video will be easier to edit if you pause for a few moments after a mistake and then restart so that section can be quickly found by the lack of audio.
  • Make sure you are in a well-lit area.
  • Put your camera at face level (use a stand, or stack of books if you are using a laptop camera), relatively close to you.
  • Explore Zoom setup options in the client. Select ‘Settings’ and consider using a virtual background.
  • Look directly at your camera while speaking, your attendees will feel much more included in the conversation. 
  • As long as you have a decent internet connection, you will get the best quality audio experience by selecting ‘use my computer’ for audio.
  • Make sure you are in a quiet area.
  • Use a pair of ear buds (any that work with your computer) along with your computer microphone. If you can’t be in a quiet area, consider a headset with microphone.

Think of a poster as a summary of your work, advertisement of your research, and source of information. A poster is visual communication of your research, not your research copy and pasted on to a slide. Here are some good examples of a final poster:

1.  Open Zoom, click the “Schedule” button; you pick the time between 9 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. EDT on April 22, 2020, to host your live session. For a group, one person will schedule a Zoom meeting room and then invite the rest of the participants. Invite your co-presenters by clicking the “Invite” button on the control bar at the bottom of the Zoom window and sending them an email; consider making another member of the group an alternative host. Once your meeting is scheduled copy the event URL and email it to standerposterprint@udayton.edu along with the scheduled start time and the duration of your session (3-5 minutes for posters; 10-15 minutes for oral presentations and porch projects; 10-20 for panels and performances).

2.  On the day of the event the host should start the meeting about 5 minutes before your scheduled presentation time. Use the provided welcome slide at the beginning of your live presentation to share virtual session logistics (i.e. keep yourself on mute unless you are speaking, taking questions via chat feature, technical difficulties, etc.). To share your screen, click the green “Share” button in the control bar.

3.  At your scheduled session time begin your presentation. Remember to introduce yourself and any other presenters, stating your research title.

4.  Take questions at the conclusion of your presentation if there is time. Use the chat feature to allow participants to submit questions. You or a moderator can read the questions aloud before answering.

5.  Consider recording your live presentation. Click the “Record” button at the bottom of the meeting window when you start your meeting. Select “Record to Cloud” to save your video there or “Record on this Computer” to record only to your hard drive. When Zoom is recording you will see a small red dot at the top left of the meeting window. When you are done recording, click the “Stop Recording” button in the control bar and then click “End Meeting” at the bottom right.
