Transcript of Prezi

According to the Prezi website, prezi is defined as “A cloud-based presentation software and storytelling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas.”

Prezi was invented to be an alternative and fun way to present presentations, and it is completely different from PowerPoint.

Prezi was also based on a zooming program, ZUI; however, it became known for its zooming characteristic, and it states on the website “Anyone could zoom in a presentation.”

Prezi was created on April 2009.

The founders are: Peter Arvai, Peter Halacsy, and
Adam Somlai-Fischer.

Prezi is mostly used for:
