How to stop your Prezi making people feel sick!
Transcript of How to stop your Prezi making people feel sick!
Now let's see that presentation
If you create Prezis, it is your DUTY to do everything you can to prevent motion sickness in your audience. Here are the 5 key elements to influence this for the better: Positioning, Distancing, Sizing, Rotation and Pacing.
Prezi's ability to zoom is its USP, but it can also be the biggest barrier to an effective presentation. Limit the swooping, zooming, and barrel rolling as much as you can. Use it sparingly, and for a reason - use it to
tell your story
, not just because you can!
Placing your objects at random on the canvas makes your presentation feel haphazard and leaves the audience disorientated. Put the main content running from left to right or top to bottom - it's what the brain is used to.
Large gaps between your objects cause Prezi to zoom out and zoom back in again, increasing the risk of motion sickness. Placing them close means you slide between them with no zooming at all (like in this presentation)
Clustering your objects in groups of the same size means the you move around the Prezi with less fuss. Making a large object between two smaller objects means the zoom works overtime and your audience may feel ill.
Rotation is fun - for the creator of the Prezi! It's really not that much fun for the audience, though; it's the worst offender for motion-sickness. Only spin or roll if you have a VERY GOOD REASON which supports your story.
The final thing is not to move to quickly around the canvas. Pace your talk like you would a PowerPoint presentation, taking one or two minutes over each slide, rather than zipping around the canvas super quickly.
(Remember, no matter how impressive your presentation, if it leaves people feeling sick at the end then it's not an effective communication tool.)
Thanks for watching!
