the lecturer

Hereinafter, referred to as "Consultant/Contractor". Hereinafter, collectively referred to as the "Parties" (The nouns used are gender neutral).

1.    Website Post / Webinar

1.1.    The contractor creates a website post/webinar for vet-webinar with their own resources and time
1.2.    This addition consists of:

  • Creating a presentation using, for example, Microsoft Powerpoint
  • Supplying the presentation as PDF with 6 slides per pages
  • A recording/webinar that goes with the presentation that lasts between 45 and 50 minutes
  • Creating five (5) multiple choice questions with 3-5 answer options, but only one correct one
  • Creating/recording a short trailer/blurb (max 90 sec)

1.3.    Regarding the creation and broadcast of the presentation

Since the vet-webinar-customers do not see the presenting contractor, they rely much more on the slides of the presentation, therefore it is imperative to make each slide informative, interesting and clear for the customers. The elimination of body language should be compensated for using one’s voice. One should give an up-beat presentation, while attempting to minimize the amount of pauses and “ums”.  Furthermore, one should pay attention to not deliver the presentation too quickly and not to just monotonously recite. It is imperative that the contractor uses a headset! We prefer using USB devices because they deliver exceptional quality. Bluetooth or WiFi headsets cannot be used because there is always the danger of interference and poor sound quality in the recording.  The webinar can be presented by the contractor from anywhere, as long as there is access to dependable and fast internet (not mobile Internet or free internet access in hotels or restaurants). We highly recommend using a connection via LAN, rather than WLAN. Furthermore, we also ask the contractor to check his/her internet speed two weeks before the actual date of the presentation using, but at the same time and in the same location as the webinar. To do a speed test, please access the website and then e-mail us the results for the “Up-“ and “Download Speed” A connection via LAN instead of WLAN is strongly recommended. If videos should be included to the presentation they have to be sent to vet-webinar as mp4 before the webinar. It is not possible to include the videos to the power point presentation. 

1.4.    System requirements to run the software can be found using this link.
1.5.    Comprehensive Quiz: The users obtain a certificate of attendance, and therefore, need to complete a multiple choice test with five (5) questions. We ask the contractor to create these multiple choice questions, with 3-5 answer options per question and only one correct answer, and to send this to us via e-mail ( We need these questions at least 60 days before the date of the webinar.
1.6.    Accreditation: All webinars need to be accredited by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) in order to do this we require the follow details: A full CV or the attached RACE Bio Page, a short blurb 100-150 word describing learning objectives and 5 multiple choice questions for the comprehensive quiz. These should be sent to 60 days prior to the symposium. 
1.7.    The consultant/contractor has to be mindful of this checklist
