Video Tips

Things to Do

  • Choose a quiet room.
  • Face a window or lamp to enhance light on your face.
  • Maintain your laptop camera or phone at slightly above eye level.
  • If using your phone, prop it against books to hold it steady.
  • Sit within 2 feet of the camera.
  • Speak directly to the camera as though you were talking to a friend.

Things to Avoid

  • Don’t have objects in the background appear to stick out from your head.
