Instructions for Video Recordings

Videos should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides, along with audio of the spoken presentation. Optionally videos may contain a shot of the speaker’s face for increased engagement. This shot should be thumbnail-sized and overlaid on the slide images as shown here.

Presentation software allows recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files. Please see the notes below for detailed instructions for PowerPoint and if you use a different application, please see the notes under Other Options.


  1. Follow these instructions to add audio (and optionally video) to your slides.
  2. Follow these instructions to generate a MPEG-4 (.mp4) file from your slides and audio/video.

Other Options

  1. Record your screen (and microphone) while giving the presentation. There are effective and free options to do this on LinuxmacOS, and Windows.
  2. As a last resort, and only if you are comfortable directly editing video, you can export your slides as images, record an audio track, and combine the two using software like kdenliveiMovie, or others.
