If you haven’t seen Prezi yet, and you really want to learn something new which is really different, I highly recommend checking it out.
What is Prezi?
Prezie differs from PowerPoint, it is a web-based program that allows you to create more of a canvas presentation instead of a sequential slide presentation. Think non-linear. It allows you to incorporate not only text and pictures, but videos and other presentation objects. You can create your presentation online and then download the final product so that you don’t require an internet connection to display the presentation.
and here is one opinion from Jay Ball, written on his WordPress blog :
In a nutshell, Prezi is a Flash-based presentation system that allows users to create incredibly dynamic presentations. Presentations where you can zoom in and out across a large area (no slides), create motion paths, embed images and video and do things that previously needed a pretty competent Flash developer and a whole chunk of time. It kicks traditional slideware way into touch.
Why do you have to choose Prezie?
There are so many reasons why you should use Prezi for your next presentation, and here are some of them :
- Forces you to think about the relationship between the ideas you intend to present
- Very flexible in what/how you can present. Good with both pre-planned paths, on-the-fly path changes, and even a combination of both
- End product presentation is sure to have WAY more of an impact than powerpoint or keynote
That said, that Prezi’s benefits easily outweigh any possible negatives. Invest some time getting to know this new tool, and you’ll be able to take your presentations to the next level
