Don't wear lettering – it will appear backward.
Do wear solid, darker colors - This makes the writing display more clearly in front of presenters.
Don’t wear all black - you’ll look like a floating head. : )
If using PowerPoint:
Set all backgrounds to
Place any graphics to the side of your dominant hand for easier annotation.
If using PowerPoint for talking points, position in a discreet location on the lower right or left of the slide to maintain visibility of the confidence monitor.
- Write on the side of your dominant hand, then step to the side to instruct. Don't stand directly behind your writing while instructing if possible.
- Look at the camera’s red light while instructing. This will help your viewers feel like you're talking directly to them.
- If you make a mistake, DON'T STOP RECORDING. Just pause for a few seconds, take a breath, and start the segment again. Then afterward, use Panopto's web-based editor to remove/edit the mistake. It's easy and can be helpful for longer presentations. For shorter presentations, you may find it's just easier to do another take.
- If using PPT, slides may be advanced during recording using the keypad next to the marker tray.
- Check your email for links to view, edit and share your recording.
