GIVE YOUR VIEWERS REACTION TIME
With many participants in one room, a group dynamic quickly develops. It is easier to ask questions when you can see that others also have a question. It is therefore important to check more often if there are comments or questions.
PLAN BREAKS, FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR AUDIENCE
The average attention span in front of the screen is shorter than in a workshop room with other people. Therefore, it is important that you plan enough breaks to process the recorded information. You will also find that more breaks are needed if you look into a camera instead of into faces.
Tip: You can use the pauses to collect questions and answer them at the beginning of the next block.
DO NOT WEAR GREEN CLOTHES
Green clothes are the natural enemy of green screen keying. If you stand in front of a green wall and wear a green shirt, your upper body will disappear. This makes people laugh, but undermines the seriousness of the matter 😉
