Everyone likes to be a show-off once in a while! You can learn to make fabulous visual presentations that will knock the socks off your classmates or colleagues using PowerPoint or Prezi!
Students are often asked to present research or report to classmates on subjects for school. Business professionals sometimes find themselves speaking in front of clients or colleagues. Don't get caught off guard the next time you're asked to speak. We can show you how to create a visual component to accompany your oh-so-eloquent voice!
What's the difference? PowerPoint is a Microsoft Office program that you use to create slides that go along with your spoken presentation. The public computers at the Community Technology Center have PowerPoint on them, as do most Windows computers. PowerPoint has been around for a long time, and is the most widely known presentation tool around.
Prezi: The Zooming Presentation Editor is not a series of slides like PowerPoint; instead your presentation will zoom in and out in a non-linear fashion. It's also different from PowerPoint because it doesn't have to live on a computer or a flash drive. Once it's created, you will be able to access your Prezi presentation from any computer with an internet connection! A valid email address is required to create your free Prezi account.
