Before the presentation. We would like you to test your computer is compatible with Adobe Connect (the virtual classroom system we use to connect tutors, guests and course participants. A bit like Skype with bells on) Click below and follow the instructions, the test page will work out what works and what doesn't.
What do I present? We would like you to create a short presentation, preferably a Powerpoint or a PDF that visualises your presentation. If you want to share video we can do that too. We need your content at least 48 hours before the class so we have time to upload into the Connect room. You might prefer to screen share, which is the best way to show video in Connect.
In terms of the content of your presentation we really want you to communicate three key themes: What you do, What you make and why you do it. The image below suggest how you might compose presentation.

How long is the presentation? It's very short. Only ten minutes with an extra five minutes for Q &A to tell your life story! It is impossible to cover everything in detail in only ten minutes. The class is usually fun with students signing up because they have a passion for this subject, so we are trying to inspire as well as inform.
