A high-speed internet connection
The speakers are advised to use the Zoom application beforehand in order to get used to the interface and the functioning. During the presentation, they are also advised to be extra careful when connecting or disconnecting the camera or muting the microphone. If a speaker is not speaking, the microphone should preferably be on mute during the sessions.
To ensure effective broadcasting, the PowerPoint presentation should be in the 16:9 format. If you are converting the presentation from 4:3 into 16:9, make sure that the figures do not get stretched. If they do get stretched, use the option in the figure-size menu to restore the original size.
