From EDUCAUSE, 7 Things You Should Know About Virtual Labs
Some student projects culminate in some type of presentation, such as a speech, demonstration, or performance. In the online context, these presentations usually need to be transmitted over the internet in a digital format, either synchronously or asynchronously.
If the learning objectives for the assignment can be met with a recorded (asynchronous) presentation, invite students to record their presentation in an appropriate format. Depending on the particulars of the assignment, you might ask students to record audio only, an audio voiceover to a slideshow, a video, or some variation on these formats. Students can then upload the recording using the Assignments tool in Canvas.
If the learning objectives for the assignment are best met with a real-time (synchronous) presentation, Google Meet/Hangouts or Zoom are the tools currently supported institutionally. The audio and video fidelity of a video conference transmission will not be as good as a direct personal experience in a face-to-face context, especially for the subtleties of a musical or dramatic performance, but may be the best we can achieve online.
