Webinar CE Content FAQs

Q: What Methods Will Be Used For Recording My Presentation?

A: An OSLHA Host will be present to facilitate your Webinar session and to welcome speakers and guests to the live webinar event.  Zoom will be the platform used for the session and your OSLHA host will manage the recording, editing and publication of the webinar content when it is offered later as a recorded CE activity.  The final recorded product will be an MP4 file that will include the video and audio from the webinar session.  Attendee questions may be included in the final recording, as applicable.


Q: What Else Should I Consider When Conducting My Webinar Presentation?

A: Consider Your Setting & Background: We highly recommend you choose a quiet location with lots of natural or supplemental, artificial lighting directed towards you from the side or front of your recording device. Avoid sitting in front of windows or doors where the backlight can wash out a clear image of you and your face.

Arrange the camera /computer slightly elevated (add a stack of books, if needed) to capture an image of you straight on, from the shoulders up and with your headshot filling more than half of the screen.  This will ensure they see your lips and full face and can follow along in close similarity to a face to face interaction. 

Choose a solid and uncluttered wall as your background or consider using our free zoom background template to avoid distracting background contents that might draw attention away from your presentation and important message.


Presentation View: When recording on Zoom be sure to open the slideshow presentation on your shared screen and run it in the “Presentation/Slideshow” mode so it fills the whole screen with your slide for the viewer and eliminates your toolbars, speaker notes and desktop. This will also place your face in a presenter window in the top corner of the presentation, allowing unobstructed view of your presentation/slide contents.


Prepare for the Best Sound Quality:  Choose a quiet location and turn off fans, phones and alarms to avoid unexpected sound effects during your presentation.  We also request that you use a microphone or headset for your audio recording to ensure background noise is limited and sound quality is the best possible for our participants who experience speech or hearing challenges.


Smile, Speak Clearly & Have Fun: Participants are curious about new opportunities to connect in virtual environments and they are excited to see your smiling face and hear the valuable information you have to share with them!


Q: Do I Need To Relay the Attendance Code in My Presentation?

A: Yes, please be sure to include the case-sensitive attendance code we have shared with you, exactly as assigned to you via email, printed on one of your presentation slides and please take time to verbalize this code, as well.  These codes will be needed by those who view your recorded presentation as a means of validating their full participation.

It would be ideal for you to include this at the end or at a middle point of your presentation to ensure viewers do their honorable best to view the complete contents of the presentation before claiming credit for their participation in this activity.  This code will be requested from participants at the completion of viewing the recorded version of your session and must be entered correctly in order for their participation to appear on their activity certificate of completion. If you are unsure what your assigned code was, please let us know as soon as possible (Contact Us).


Q: How Do I Share My Presentation Handouts?

A: Please submit a single document for your handout.  You can save your slideshow slides in note-taking format (3 per page) as a PDF file.   Alternately, you are welcome to provide your handout as a word document if you prefer to present a handout in outline format.  If you have multiple resources, references or files to share, please save them as a single PDF handout before submitting to us.  This ensures participants can access and print the full portfolio of pages in a single effort.



Q: How Do I Develop & Share My (8) Post-Session Assessment Questions & Answers?

A: Please be sure to prepare (8) T/F or Multiple Choice (w/4 answer choices) questions to cover the the content you will present on.  This post-session assessment will be completed by participants who view your recorded session to obtain a passing grade as confirmation they have achieved the session learner outcomes you developed.  Give consideration to the most important elements and concepts in your presentation when developing your assessment questions.  Be sure to include the correct answer for us, as well!
