Internet connection:
If you can view any YouTube video ( without interruptions or hiccups in browsing, video, or audio – you are good to go! If you are having troubles or things are going slowly, try moving closer to your wi-fi router or connect your computer via a network cable for a better internet connection. If you remain having unstable internet, consider doing a pre-recorded video presentation. 

Make sure your computer is up-to-date and running stable (no warning messages, annoying advertisement pop-ups, software update reminders). Close all software programs you won't be needing during your presentation to avoid unwanted notification messages (incoming e-mails, calendar reminders). If you are using a laptop, make sure your power adaptor is connected so your computer doesn't run out of battery.

Choose a quiet environment, free of any distractions (no open windows, no street noise from roadworks or passing vehicles with sirens, no kids or pets around). It is strongly advised to use a headset with microphone to reduce environment noise and have a good quality audio.

Video: Check your camera image for any distractions or private items that are visible in your video background (family pictures, prints on the walls with confidential info) – remove anything you don't want others to see. Check whether your face is sufficiently lit, and if your facial expressions are clearly visible on screen. Avoid pointing the camera to windows (backlight) and try adding an extra light behind your camera to make your face more visible if necessary.
