In a first year Agricultural Systems Computations and Communications course, students are required to prepare and deliver a demonstration of skills, tools, or software features related to course content. These formal presentations are delivered in a virtual meeting room and recorded live during a laboratory period so that students in other sections of the same course and future students can view the demonstrations. This engaging activity which results in live recordings with screen capture and audio recording has several educational objectives. They include: i. become familiar with web-based virtual meeting room software typical of webinars and other life-long learning and distance education venues, ii. review course material, iii. reinforce elements of good communications through delivery of a well-planned presentation with suitable visual support, and iv. Increase familiarity with a variety of software.
