CCCC 2023 On-Demand Information for Presenters

REGISTRATION:  Remember to register! Registration is required for all speakers.

NCTE EVENT POLICIES: Please review prior to Convention.

CCCC 2023 LAND/WATER ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: Please visit this resource for researching and creating your own CCCC 2023 Land/Water Acknowledgement.


On-demand recordings will be available for attendee viewing until May 18, 2023.



  • For your on-demand session recording, we highly recommend presenting your session just as you would at an in-person event.
    • For Panel Presentations/Roundtable Sessions: If your session is fully on demand, we request you record the session with all of your co-presenters together, either in person or as a meeting via Zoom. If you are not able to record it together as a single presentation, please combine your recordings and upload only one video file. Only one person from your session needs to upload materials.  
  • The recommended length of your presentation is a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 75 minutes.
  • We recommend ending your presentation with a slide showing your contact information—email, website, phone number—so attendees can contact you with comments or questions.
  • In order to be ADA compliant, presenters must include closed-captioning or a session transcript for all on-demand sessions. You may use whichever captioning or transcript service you’d like, but we recommend: 

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use hardwired internet service when recording 
  • Use a headset for clear audio 
  • Embed video clips into your PowerPoint presentation 
    • Select a slide, then go to Insert> Video 
    • Select Video on My PC. 
    • Select the video you want to add from your computer, then select Insert 
  • Include proper introduction and closure; thank the audience 
  • Choose a quiet environment 
  • Test lighting and camera positioning prior to presentation 
  • Be mindful of your background 
  • Mute your microphone when not speaking

  • Can presenters share their own presentation outside of Convention?
    Yes, presenters are free to share their presentations outside of the 2023 CCCC Annual Convention after Convention has concluded.
