B) Recorded PowerPoint Presentation
Authors are required to adhere to using the ASCAAD standard PowerPoint graphic template provided here. The template has the flexibility to allow the presenter to layout their own graphical material only within the rectangular content area between the header/footer of the power slide. Authors can also embed illustration videos within their PowerPoint presentation.
Your recorded PowerPoint video presentation of your work should be short and a maximum of 6 minutes duration. Provide the most engaging content of your research work and informative to your audience to summarize the key ideas of your work. Perhaps (7-10) content slides in total is a suitable length.
Authors are presented with many options to produce their recorded PowerPoint presentation slides. In general, video conferencing software like ZOOM, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams allows video capturing to the conference required format (MP4). Simply create a meeting and join that meeting with your co-authors as needed to start recording your meeting.
It is always great to record your video in a space with no noise or sound obstruction and wearing a headset will enhance the sound quality.
There is also other Screen Recording software such as Apowersoft screen recorder and Debut video capturing.
