Presentation 4: Semester 2 Progress
These presentations should be used to explain to the audience what you have done so far, and what is remaining to complete your project. It is recommended you include demonstrations of what you have done.
Your presentation will be delivered as a video. You create the video using whatever approach you choose (video camera, phone, screen recording, animations, slides, or a mix), submit the file, and then it will be made available to others to view.
Speaking: The video must contain both students speaking for some time. This can be either recording your voice (overlayed on other graphics), or video of you as you speak. You should not use other people to speak for you, unless it is necessary for your system.
Contributions: both students in the group must contribute to the production of the video
Duration: must be between 4 minutes 30 seconds and 5 minutes. The duration will be checked by software, and any files outside this limits will be ignored (assume you did not submit). E.g. a video of 4:29 or 5:01 will be ignored.
Encoding: you may use any codec/format/resolution that us supported by YouTube.
File Size: there is no limit on file size (however there is no need to use a resolution above normal HD, e.g. do not use 2K or 4K).
Some examples of the content in the video include:
- Students standing in front of a camera and presenting in the same way they present to a live audience
- Screencasts of the application being used (or source code or design), edited to show the most important parts
- Video of the system being used, e.g. a person using a mapping application to move around SIIT
- Animations or other computer graphics, including slide show, that illustrate the design and operation of your system.
Name your file based on your group name, e.g. bs1.mp4 or sg3.mkv. There are different ways to submit:
- Copy your file to the IT server and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the full path of the file, e.g. "/home/students/u5012345678/bs1.mp4"
- Give Steve a USB drive with the file on it (the USB will be returned once the file is copied)
Do NOT commit to SVN. Do NOT send the video via email. Doing either of these will result in a penalty.
After the submission deadline, files will be uploaded by Steve to YouTube as "unlisted" videos. Links to the YouTube videos will then be made available to students and faculty. Both students and faculty will be required to view a selection of the videos and evaluate them.
