Students who would like to be considered in the awards section of the conference should also upload their complete presentation essay and/or poster under the "Additional Files" tab by Monday, March 8, 2021.

Please note that prerecorded posters are not required to be uploaded at this point, but are required to be completed by March 22 (see details below).

How to Record Your Poster Presentation in Microsoft Stream

This year, Allison Galloup has created helpful video tutorials on how to record yourself using Microsoft Stream for the prerecorded poster session. To access these videos, please click the link below to take you to our Stream Channel, 26 Annual Research Conference.

    Brief Overview for Posters - Students who are submitting prerecorded posters can either:

  • Record their voice using Stream with PowerPoint or another application as their poster then upload it to our Stream channel (26 Annual Research Conference)
  • Upload a prerecorded video of themselves with a physical poster to our Stream channel (26 Annual Research Conference)

  • We request this recording be about 3-5 minutes in length. After this is completed and uploaded to our Stream channel, please don’t forget to share permissions with us (curca@ung.edu) so we can have access to download and then upload your recording to our Digital Commons site here. The due date for recording/uploading a video on Stream is March 22, 2021.
