Video Submission

Send us the YouTube link to your maximum 3 minute video of you presenting your poster. Dress in business attire and be mindful of your backdrop. For directions on the video see the resources below.

We will then create a page just for you with your title, name, faculty mentor’s name, abstract, your three-minute-or-less video, and an image of your poster. There will also be an interactive comments section that will allow visitors to the page to ask questions. 

Just as in the in-person symposium, you will be assigned a specific hour that you will be required to be online to respond to questions from visitors to the site.  Also, you will be assigned a second hour to visit your peer’s posters and interact with them. 


Quick Elevator Pitch Example
Here is an example of conciseness while still providing all the necessary information. For your presentation, it is not necessary to cover all the small details. If someone wants to know those, they can ask a question in the comments. Instead, focus on the bigger picture of your research, results, and conclusions. Think of this video as a normal presentation of material, only recorded and with a time limit. Cover the important topics of your research and get your point across.

For recording your presentation, you do not need to print your poster and have it with you, however you can still reference it as it will be visible for the audience. For groups that may not be able to record together in person it is acceptable to record a conference call. Once the presentation is recorded please upload it to YouTube on your own account, make the video public or unlisted depending on preference, and send us the link to your video to post on your page. Below is information on how to upload.
