Deadline to Submit, Wednesday, May 10
As we have done at two previous two Annual Conferences (and 3 prior Campus conferences), IDEA requires all presenters to provide a video of their presentation (in mp4 format) as well.
Why do I need to submit a video recording?
The recording is used as back up in the event you are unable to make it to the conference.
Do not record your video until IDEA has approved your presentation materials.
Once your presentation materials and/or slides are uploaded, they will be reviewed and (barring any issues with content) approved by IDEA ASAP. Once approved, you can begin recording.
How Do I Record A Video?
Your video does not have to be a Spielberg production. We have found that scheduling a Zoom meeting between presenters (or recording a meeting with yourself if you are a single presenter), while sharing your slides is the easiest way to do this (Microsoft Teams can be used as well). Hundreds of speakers have successfully produced session recordings over the past two years, often finding it a helpful ‘dry run’ for their poster presentation.
IDEA has put together a helpful How to Record Your Presentation Using Zoom cheat sheet for your review. If you have questions about how to record your session, please contact Jason Beal at email@example.com.
A few notes about the recording:
- If you are the only presenter in your session, you can schedule a Zoom call with an off-camera employee who can record it for you so that you can focus on your presentation. Just make sure that employee has camera off and that they have selected the 'hide non-video participants' option so they don't show up on camera.
- Once completed, the .mp4 version should be uploaded to the Speaker Resources Center by Wednesday, May 10, 2023.
As you did with your PPT and PDF, please upload for .mp4 to the Speaker Resources Center. To do so, please click the “log in” button on the top right-hand corner of the Speaker Resources Center page. Once there, you will see a tab for “My Tasks”. Select the task “Upload Presentation Materials” to upload directly to our website. If your presentation is greater than 250 MB, please upload to IDEA’s WeTransfer site: https://internationaldistrictenergyassociation.wetransfer.com/
As with your upload of PDF/PPT, make sure you name your mp4 using the naming convention
Workshop/Session and Last Name(s) of presenter(s)
Example: (Workshop Session 2_Riskalla)
- A confirmation email will be sent upon receiving your presentation; if you do not receive confirmation then the presentation was not received.
This prerecorded mp4 file must be delivered to us by Wednesday, May 10 to ensure we have enough time to upload into our online platform.
