2021 Recording Info

ISCRC Presentation Recording Instructions

January 15-18, 2021

In light of the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the 2021 International School Choice and Reform Conference (ISCRC) will be hosted virtually. Sessions will be pre-recorded and made available to participants through the event platform. This document contains the technical instructions necessary to record a session using the Zoom platform, specifically. If you need to use a different platform, such as Microsoft Teams, for example, please reach out directly to Keri Hunter at keri@edchoice.org.

General Notes:

Start by scheduling a time to record your panel with all presenters and the discussant/chair together. Be sure that the account being used to record your panel is a Zoom Pro or Zoom Business account (rather than a Basic account) so you may record for an hour. This is important, as Zoom Basic accounts will cut participants off after 45 minutes. Each person will need permission to share their screens if they are showing slides. This will need to be set up before the Zoom is launched. Step-by-step instructions for the person setting up your panel’s Zoom are included on the next page. (The person with this responsibility will likely be the session chair).

Total presentation time should be one hour or less. Do not forget to PRESS RECORD! You are encouraged to adhere to the following format:

Do not forget to stop the recording.

We ask that you please do your best to record the session in one take to minimize editing. Unfortunately, things do happen. If you happen to sneeze or stumble over your words once or twice, please make a note of the time at which it occurred, and we will do our best to remove it. If you have any technical issues, please feel free to contact jacob@edchoice.org.
