Wow! Zoom! Sweep! with Prezi Presentations
Prezi is a free cloud-based program that allows users to create moving (literally) presentations by zooming in, out and around visual objects, whether they're images or power words. Think of it like this: Prezi is to Powerpoint as a landline phone is to an iPhone. There are advantages to both, but Prezi has a lot more bells and whistles, capabilities and is all around a more impressive product. While Powerpoint is arranged in a linear fashion (think slide after slide of Title Subtitle Bullet Bullet Bullet, blah blah blah), Prezi allows you to present information without being bound to this step by step format. Instead of going from slide to slide, you zoom from concept to concept, and arrange the movement of the "camera" according to the concept you're trying to get across. And yet it's not a video- during the presentation, you control the speed at which the screens change. That sounds confusing! It's easier to watch than to describe, so click here to see a video. Click here here and here to see examples of Prezis I think are awesome.
Whether you're creating a presentation for work, preparing a report for school or putting together a slideshow of personal photos, Prezi will seriously impress audiences. All you need is an internet connection to make it happen!
