Guidelines for Presentations

Oral Presentation

Presentation Tool

You can prepare standard digital slideshow (e.g. Microsoft Power Point) for oral presentation in the iLRN virtual campus powered by VirBELA. You are allowed to use screen sharing in your presentation. Please note that when you play video with sound in your presentation, the sound will not be delivered to the audience—your voice through microphone takes priority. To avoid this, if necessary, please prepare video with subtitles.

It may be the first time for you to make an oral presentation in the virtual campus. You will be allowed to access the virtual campus from a few days before the conference. Please get used to the virtual campus for your successful presentation.
You will receive your user account for the virtual campus on 1 December.
