Conclusion
What is Prezi?
Instead of slides, Prezi makes use of one large canvas that allows you to pan and zoom to various parts of the canvas and emphasize the ideas presented in each.

Prezi has "frames" instead of slides
Frames are zoomable
Web based or desktop based, depending on licensing

Prezi
Should You Use Prezi?
It depends...

My order of preference:
1) Combination of PowerPoint and PowerPoint Online

2) Google Slides

3) Then Prezi
Why?
Prezi is not as intuitive as I would like.

Prezi is not as fully featured as I would like.

Prezi can feel slow on a slow computer.

Spell check does not work (probably because of my computer settings); no thesaurus.

Prezi's online platform makes it easy to share, but the handout limitations reduce its appeal.
When To Use Which?
PowerPoint for:
Business presentations
Information that requires graphs and charts
Audience who wants handouts

Prezi for:
Non business presentations
Children or in classrooms
Stories that need visual persuasion (sales)
Getting Started
Web: http://www.prezi.com
Pricing tiers:
From $4.92/mo

To work offline, you need the Pro license, which costs $13.25/mo.

You can create an account for free. With a public account, your prezis will be publicly viewable, searchable, and reusable.
