Create Meaningful, Interactive Virtual Ceremonies
When graduates and families cannot gather in person, virtual ceremonies provide a safe and accessible way to celebrate this important milestone. MarchingOrder virtual ceremonies allow families and graduates to share the commencement experience with:
- Live or pre-recorded speeches
- Graduates highlighted on personalized, university-branded slides
- Include photos, messages, honors and more (opt)
- Graduate names announced by professional readers and pronounced perfectly
- Embedded social media feeds and other engaging live elements

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I export a slideshow as a video?
Clients are delivered a copy of all the graduate slides packaged inside the MarchingOrder Director Software. The software features a new "Generate Slideshow Video" button that allows clients to export an MP4 file of the slideshow that can be used as one of your featured videos on the virtual ceremony page or edited into your video to simulate the name calling portion of a graduation ceremony.
Who creates the video Content for Virtual Ceremonies?
MarchingOrder provides clients with a structure for the virtual ceremony webpage. MarchingOrder will produce the graduate slides and name recordings, and the MarchingOrder software is able to export the slideshow as a MP4 video. Clients will need to make arrangements to film and produce any additional video content and then upload them to Vimeo or YouTube, which will then be embedded on your virtual ceremony page. The MarchingOrder Virtual Ceremony Website will support up to 5 embedded videos. If you have multiple virtual ceremony websites, you can use different videos for each ceremony. Your portal will provide you space to embed 5 video links, and to set a title and description for each video. Simply upload your finalized videos to YouTube or Vimeo. Once uploaded, you should gather your video links. If you embed a live stream, this content will go live at the time you designate. If you embed pre-recorded videos, the viewer will press play to start the show.
