Online Presentations - Students

Sharing a presentation while attending class remotely has several steps you'll need to consider. Your professor will decide whether the presentation should be presented during a live class session (synchronous) or pre-recorded (asynchronous). Either option can be accomplished using a BlueJeans meeting.

Synchronous (live) Presentations

To share presentations during a live class over BlueJeans, individuals or groups should share one person's screen, and should unmute audio and video. You should also post your slide decks either in the Assignments or the Discussions sections in Canvas, depending on what your professor tells you to do.

Tips:

  • You  should PRACTICE in BlueJeans before delivering your presentation in class.
  • For group presentations, one group member should share their screen during the presentation. Other group members should give verbal cues to advance the slide.

Asynchronous Presentations

You will use BlueJeans to create a Virtual Meeting with your group and record the presentation. Make sure to PRACTICE in BlueJeans before recording the session for submission.

Once the recording is complete, it will be accessible for the meeting organizer to either download or retrieve the link to upload to Canvas. There are two ways to do this:

  • Submit as an Assignment
  • Submit in Discussions

The Assignment/Discussion distinction is based on faculty preference. Please clarify with your professor where you should upload your presentation.
