We are very honoured and proud you are willing to contribute to the ESOT Online Learning platform Transplant Live. We do realise that this means a lot of effort from your side and we are very grateful for that.

Please watch these 3 short briefing videos (12 minutes in total), in order to make sure you are making best use of your time and deliver your best performance.

What to prepare before you travel

This short video explains how to select and prepare the content of your weblecture. It covers:

  1. Determining your learning objectives
  2. Selecting your content, using a lot of visuals
  3. Preparing your slides to support your lecture

Pro-tips for your slides

  • Use a lot of visuals on your slides; e.g. pictures, graphs or tables
  • Only use bullet lists to summarise; e.g. patient characteristics or key learning points
  • Seeing other bullet lists in your deck? Create a new slide for each bullet!

How we record your weblecture

In the next short video we will give you a quick tour of our ‘recording studio’. It covers:

  1. Where you will see your slides during the recording
  2. How to look at your best in front of the camera
  3. The transfer of your educational materials

How to be at your best in front of the camera

This last short video explains how to think and behave during the recording itself. It covers:

  1. Thinking of an actual person who can use your content
  2. Making eye contact through the lens
  3. Creating an informal one-on-one atmosphere

Experiences of those who were before you:

On behalf of all of us I would also like to say thank you to Gerrit and Jochem from the LiveOnlineEvents recording team. Their professionalism and expertise were crucial for the quality of these sessions. They were very re-assuring, extremely patient and shared a lot of knowledge and media-training with us.

Just to say how much I enjoyed working with you. The team was great, comparable with anything I have met on various live television networks in the past but remaining calm and delightful to deal with, at all times despite deadlines.

Examples of the 3 different content formats

We designed 3 different learning formats, in order to create the best possible learning environment. Those 3 formats are:


We will do the recording of your ± 15–20 minute web lecture. This lecture will be recorded in brief segments, 2-5 minutes, with a very clear defined topic per segment.

After each of these segments, online learners will be presented with a multiple-choice question, to validate whether they have understood your key points.

Case study:

In this case we also record 3-5 segments, of 2-5 minutes, explaining the case. However, in between you challenge the learner to ‘work’ the case with you. So your segments could look something like this:

Video 1: Context of the case (When, Where, Who, What) and definition of the problem/challenge in a multiple choice question: ‘What would you do?’

Video 2-n: Introduction of complexity: e.g. different perspectives, medical complications etc. Explain why the ‘most common solution’ would not work in this case; refer to answers of multiple choice questions.  “Most people would in this case … , however, …. “. Develop further analysis of the case.

Last video: Which solution was implemented in real-life? What were the pro’s and cons of this solution and what have you learned for the future?

Demo lecture

This is more like a ‘show & tell’ format, where we follow you in practice, performing the procedure that you want to explain. For example a heart biopsy, a pathology microscope analysis or an ex vivo machine perfusion.

Additional relevant literature / materials

While preparing the content of your lecture, you might make use of certain abstracts, publications or (e-)books. Please keep track of those and collect them in a file somewhere.

We would love to add links to these sources within the learning module that you are contributing to. You can transfer them to us on an USB stick or via a link in an email.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

These are some questions, you still might have:

Can I get access to the ESOT Transplant Live Platform?

Yes you can! The platform is still in beta, but here is a link to the registration page which allows you to take a look at some of the content:

What should I wear?

Whatever makes you feel good! However, we would recommend avoiding completely white or black garments, or colorful checkered or dotted designs.

What will happen after the recording?

We will edit the recordings; add the slides, the multiple choice questions, open question and discussion. Then you will receive a link from us to review your lecture and share your feedback. After that the final version will be uploaded to the e-learning platform and be open for learners.

Do you expect me to review assignments?

No you don’t have to review anything afterwards. I can imagine you are curious to see what the learners discuss and how they review each other and you are invited and will have access at all times.

How do I contact the recording team?
