PRESENTING AT AN ONLINE CONFERENCE

If you’re not sure about presenting in an online format, here is some information to help you decide:

  • You can choose to pre-record your presentation (preferred option) or present live.
  • You can practice your recording as much as you like to get it just right.
  • You can watch your presentation via the presenter view as it streams to conference attendees and review and respond to questions coming in.
  • You can craft your presentation to suit you – include video of you in your recording or create a voiceover for your slides.
  • You can use other features to engage attendees such as polls, handouts and discussion forums.
  • Our conference coordinators will work with you to support any technical needs or queries and be available via live chat in the lead up to your presentation on the day and during.
