General Recording Tips
- Please ensure that the webcam inset of your own face does not obstruct any part of your slides. For example, if you place it at the top right, ensure that it doesn’t cover any part of any title on any slide.
- Ensure your surroundings are quiet, no background noise.
- Turn off any alerts on your computer, phone, etc. (e.g., use airplane mode).
- Avoid using a noisy keyboard, especially if the space-bar makes a distinct clicking sound. If you can’t use a quieter keyboard, use keys other than the space-bar (e.g., right or down arrow key); or advance your slides using the mouse.
- Finally, you and your co-authors should watch your own videos to ensure they look and sound good.
