    good outline and a presentation template picked out, you can begin creating individual slides. DELIVER CREATE ORGANIZE PLAN

    3 minute question and answer ▸ There will be multiple rooms simultaneously presenting over Zoom ▸ Try to practice over Zoom ahead of time with friends ▸ Check your background and lighting ahead of time ▸ Clean your desktop, close browser windows, close all other applications ▸ If you get alerts on your computer, turn Do Not Disturb on
  45. 4. PRESENTATION DAY CAPSTONE SPECIFICS 1. The faculty member who

    is in-charge of your room will enable you to share your screen. Once enabled, click “Share Screen”: 2. Then choose the screen you want to share and Slick “Share”:
  46. 4. PRESENTATION DAY CAPSTONE SPECIFICS 3. Once you’ve shared your

    screen, then go ahead and start your presentation. a. I recommend placing the thumbnail videos in the corner of your screen so you can still see some audience members. They won’t see themselves! 4. When you’re done, your can click “Stop Share” at the top of your screen:
