Most people don't
record their Thesis defense and make it available publicly to view.
Live-streaming or video calling is one thing, but recording
it for all to see??? Why is that? It's a huge risk.
Different from planned lectures or talks, a defense
has high stakes--it's what's between you and your degree, and you can't
control all of the factors. As I prepped for
my own Defense, there were limited resources available to me because it really
depends on your research, advisor, committee, etc. You can see some in action
if you are able to attend in person, but not everyone has that option. Being
the weirdo that I am (and being optimistically confident), what did I do?
I recorded my Thesis Defense so you'd know what to expect! :)
I worked with our IT Dept to test out Tegrity Software
for recording a Defense for the first time ever with the intention of making it
available for anyone to view should the video and sound transfer. And guess
what? IT DID! :D
