    Virtual Presentation Tips


PowerPoint Creation 

  • Limit the amount of information on each slide 
  • Do not use more than four colors in your presentation.  
  • Avoid red letters, which are difficult for some people to read. The best readability comes from high contrast of intensity.  
  • Rehearse your presentation prior to recording 


  • Set up your webcam at eye-height. Facing the camera face-on creates the best connection with your audience. Look at the camera while you’re talking and not the screen. 
  • Be mindful of the background. Try to sit in front of a nice looking background without clutter, distractions, or embarrassing items. 
  • Make sure there is plenty of light in the room. Do not put the light behind, above, or below you to avoid shadows in the face.  
  • Avoid being in front of windows.
  • Use a microphone or a headset rather than relying on the computer to capture the sound. 
  • Speak clearly and turn off anything that makes loud noises in the room.
