Information for Presenters, Pre-Recorded Sessions

As a presenter, you can record yourself using a variety of programs.

  • On a Windows PC, you can use PowerPoint or Teams
  • On a Mac, you can use Keynote or QuickTime
  • Or, we can set up a Teams Meeting and record your presentation for you


As you make your recordings, please keep these ideas in mind:

  1. No swearing, offensive language, etc.
  2. Be cognizant of your background, clean and representative of your organization
