Fill Out the Form and Send Us Your Presentation
Whether you are teaching from home or in a classroom, we have team of technical staff to help ensure that your presentation goes smoothly, with no technical glitches that come in the way of student learning. In order to do this, however, we need some information from you about what you will be doing during your lecture. Using polling? Showing YouTube videos? Playing audio files? Using break out rooms? Expecting more than one presenter? This is all information that we need to know in advance of your lecture.
Well in advance of your lecture, you will be sent a link to a form that includes information relevant to teaching in the MD Program this year (links to it can also be found on this page). This form also has an area for you to let us know what kind of lecture and lecture material you will be presenting. Please fill out this form and submit it. Based on the form submissions, we prepare for every lecture in advance, and doing this ensures that they are technically successful.
At least 4 working days before their lecture, lecturers need to (1) fill out a form so we have the information about the lecture, and (2) send the lecture presentation and any associated files to us.
How To Upload Your Files:
- Rename your files using this format:
- Course Code_YYYY-MM-DD-24HrTime_Name of presentation_Your last name (add _Part X at the end if there is more than one part of a presentation with the same name)
- Eg: MED100_2021-08-28-1330_Anatomy of the Thorax_Wiley_Part 2
- Click the Fill out the Lecturer Form link above. The form will open in a new browser tab.
- Read the information and fill out the form with the details of your lecture.
- When you get to the Send in your Presentation section:
- click the Attach file button, navigate to your presentation file(s), and upload
- or drag your files to the Drop files here area in the form
Q: Why do I need to upload my presentation at least 4 working days in advance?
A: This is to allow testing to ensure that your presentation will have no technical problems during delivery, add polls, and gives the MD Program admin staff time to post it as a pdf file online for students.
After submission, the presentation and any media will be tested and any issues will be addressed. Because of the very full schedule of lectures, there is limited time for this testing to be carried out and hence the necessity of the 4-working day advance submission.
If presenting in person, your presentation will be loaded onto the PC in the classroom you are teaching, ready and open when you arrive to lecture; if you are teaching from home or other online location, your presentation will be loaded onto a computer at the technician's location, ready to be deployed by them if your sharing of the screen fails or becomes unstable at any time during your presentation.
The maximum size for any one file to be uploaded is one gigabyte (GB). This should be large enough for your powerpoints and any associated media, but if your files are larger, please send an email to: email@example.com, and we will send you a link to allow a larger file to be uploaded.
Files accepted are:
- Powerpoint (.ppt, .pptx)
- Keynote (.key)
- text (.txt, .pdf, .doc, .docx))
- picture (.jpg, .gif)
- video (.mov, .avi, .wma, .wmv)
- compressed (.zip)
Note: If you have a presentation, such as a Powerpoint, from which you play videos or that contains linked images, these should all be sent together in a compressed (zipped) folder.
How to compress or zip a folder to upload:
- Make a new folder and name it: Yourname.
- If you have a presentation with linked videos or images, include all video and image files in the folder.
- On a PC: Right-click on the folder, point to: Send to, then select compressed (zipped) folder.
On a Mac: Right-click on the folder and select Compress Yourname, or on the top menu point to File and select Compress Yourname.
- Use the Lecturer Form linked on this page to send the compressed folder
