Online Presentations

Create a YouTube Presentation

Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this Conference, we encourage you to present on the Conference YouTube Channel. Here are two suggestions:

1. Record a video of your presentation before or after the Conference, or ask a colleague to record a video of your presentation at the Conference, then submit it to our YouTube channel.
2. Create a PowerPoint presentation with voice-over before or after the Conference, or record the audio of your presentation at the Conference, then link this to your PowerPoint presentation.

These presentation recordings will be published to YouTube with links to your Session Description on the Conference website.
