Virtual Celebration Presentation Guidelines
Please see this guide for some helpful tips, example videos, editing resources, and links to creative commons audio/video.
Guidelines for Video Presentations
A video presentation is taking a face-to-face sharing of your research findings (a poster, a short presentation, a three-minute thesis) and moving that to a set video presentation about your research. A video presentation can look different from student to student and from discipline to discipline. However, all video presentations should share what your project was and what you accomplished.

Guideline for Student Panel Sessions
A student panel session is a traditional live talk. Each student talk can last 5-30 minutes. The length is up to the faculty or staff member that is sponsoring the panel. These panels need to have at least three students presenting, not necessarily on the same project, but we encourage the panels to be larger. Each panel will require a faculty or staff host. The host will lead the session, moderate the student presenters, and moderate the chat.
A faculty or staff member should schedule a WebEx event for at least three student presentations (more presenters per session are encouraged). To submit the presentations to be included in the virtual celebration the session will require:
– A WebEx link through the GMU system (this is the only system that its currently GMU approved).
– Contact information (name and email) for the session host
– Communicate to student presenters to go to the registration page to register as a presenter and submit an abstract (1,500 characters/250 words or less)
– Submit the session information to OSCAR at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the subject line “Virtual Celebration WebEx”
