Although we are not going to *require that students turn on video, we are going to *strongly encourage it and *expect that judges keep video on. After the practice tournament, many students expressed concern that they couldn't take advantage of visual cues that are normally provided by competitors and judges during the debate. Debate clearly has strong verbal and visual components that are lost without cameras. Also, many expressed concern that there is no way at all to know if students are receiving outside prep assistance if they leave their cameras off.
If you are concerned about other people seeing parts of the room you are debating in, please simply do your best to position yourself against a wall.
