Thank you for volunteering to speak at Stanford’s WebCamp!
This page is for you as you prepare for your presentation remotely. As we've moved to a solely virtual presence, we're using Zoom for this camp. We've included some information below on how to set up Zoom. We want to help you make the most of this event for you and the attendees.
We hope that you will find below a couple of good things to know.
Here’s how we’re adapting our conference to be solely virtual using Zoom:
To give you a chance to connect with your moderator and get set up, before the session starts, we will admit you but hold the remaining participants in a waiting room. Once you are ready, we will admit the remaining participants.
We have assigned a moderator to help you with your session logistics.
Let your moderator know how you would like to handle questions. When would you like to handle questions? During your presentation or at the end? If during the presentation, would you like us to monitor and inform you about questions and comments for you? Or is this something you would like to handle?
If you want a special introduction, or any other help with logistics, please let your moderator know.
Be aware that if you begin having connection issues your moderator may adjust what you are displaying. This may include turning off your video.
When you are presenting, it's nice to see you as you are talking. If there are times when you have a placeholder slide, such as a "Questions?" slide, consider displaying it briefly and turning off the screen share, allowing your audience to connect better with you.
We will offer all sessions to remote participants via Zoom. You will receive your unique Zoom meeting number well ahead of time.
Please download the Zoom meeting client prior the event to familiarize yourself with the application.
You can learn more on the Help Center where you can find One Minute Video Introductions on different topics. We will still be on hand to support you during your presentation.
With your approval, we will also post the recording on our site.
