  12. Tips and Tricks

    Slide 13 - Tips and Tricks

    • If old PowerPoint deck, then open and save as “pptx” with PowerPoint 2013.
    • Use external webcam. Better A-V quality. No stylus noise.
    • Audio is key. Adjust microphone volume with slider in recording pane until signal-bar shows activity until middle of scale. Consider external microphone like Blue Yeti, Nessie.
    • Record first slide, and playback to see all ok before recording other slides.
    • Pause briefly between slides. It makes it easy to re-record individual ones.
    • Use video where essential, but audio-only allows greater focus on content and delivery.
    • Ensure video check-box off when uploading, until close to final version. It considerably slows down the publishing process.
