Speaking on Camera: How to Enhance MOOC Performances
Laura Penn (The Public Speaking School, Founding Director, Gland, Switzerland)

The MOOC filming studio presents a starkly different environment from the classrooms, boardrooms or auditoriums which MOOC speakers (speakers) may be used to. A live audience, which normally delivers emotional feedback, is replaced by an inanimate camera lens; the generous space often available in teaching environments, is more restricted in a filming studio, limiting a speaker’s ability to “speak” with their bodies; and the use of a teleprompter can make a speaker’s gaze look frozen and lifeless. Furthermore, not all speakers have on-camera performance skills, which can limit the quality of what is filmed. Taken together, these varied elements can affect the quality of MOOC performances, resulting in content that may not be as good as it could be.

This groundbreaking, hands-on workshop intends to provide a forum to discuss, a platform to experience and a formula to solve how to help speakers perform at their best in front of the camera.
