  • Some tips to prepare your video

  1. Whether your project is theoretical or by simulations, you are expected to prepare the movie as interactive, live, and interesting for the viewers. Record some minutes from running results in the software during simulation or practical tests.

  2. Record some videos from your hardware design or even software results (e.g., the screen of your computer) while they are running. Or add some discussion with members of your team, etc. At least 70% of your video should include interactive parts rather than solid slides.

  3. It is recommended that you present the work with your own voice during the video recording. Your video will be placed on the IES YouTube Channel and should attract viewers.

  4. Showing some information on the video using simple texts as subtitles is also recommended. 

  5. Sometimes, background music could make your video much more enjoyable.

  6. Try to make people interested in your videos. Devote some seconds of the video to your office, lab, or any place you work in and show the stuff you use for that project, introduce team members and supervisors, explain motivation, etc.

  7. Note that the video should be impressive and interactive. Static pictures interest only a few people. Find gifs or flash images from the Internet.

  8. Ensure you have the copyright for materials used in your video, including animations, songs, photos, etc.
