Prezi is a modern presentation tool that can make you re-think about presentations.
Have a look at the video to get an idea.
That is how Prezi can be used for a creative presentation.
How about using a presentation like this when teaching your class about planets?
So, what is Prezi?
I would say that is a very big canvas. You can paint it the way you want. Add pictures, add music and after doing all that create views (similar to slides in PowerPoint) as you wish.
- Prezi is not a collection of slides, it is a big canvas
- Prezi views are a like small photos taken off the big canvas
- Prezi is not about moving between slides, it is about zooming - zooming to the right level at the right angle
- You can add music, videos and pictures to prezi
- If you want to add animated text or cartoons, first create them in Flash, save as .swf and add them to Prezi (Have a look at this presentation for some inspiration)
- You can use a Template that comes with Prezi or create your won. Template acts as the background for your presentation.
- Path is the order of the presentation
- Path is based on frames, simply when you click next, the presentation will move along the path you have created using frames.
- There are four kinds of frames in prezi (Invisible, Bracket,Rectangle, Circle)
- Add a frame to the Prezi = Adding a new slide to power point
- Trick to master frames: Zoom into the level you like, Click edit path, then click on add current view (from the bottom left of your screen) and drag and drop the newly added frame to the position you want in the frame list.
- Theme defines the Font Colors, Fonts etc that are used in your Template
What can I do with Prezi?
- Re-create your CV
- Make business meetings interesting
- and ETC ( have a look at the possibilities here )
Does Prezi has all the Powerpoint features?
No, but Prezi is cooler than Powerpoint. If you want to see a comparison read this document
