Transcript: POWERPOINT ALTERNATIVE - PREZI MY PRESENTATION - Lakeesya Jones Assignment Answers Assignment Answers I enjoyed using this and it is very similar to PowerPoint but much more advanced. The VCN ExecuVision, was developed in 1982, and was the first software to display a presentation on a personal computer. PowerPoint, which was introduced to the Macintosh computer in 1987, is what we know to be the most popular since its inclusion in the Microsoft package for businesses, teachers, etc. But as with all things technology related, something more advanced will come along. PowerPoint has been around and will still be around for years to come due to its basic fundamentals. Prezi is a presentation tool that I like for what it has to offer. It's effective and easy to navigate. You get the simplicity of PowerPoint while having the ability to modernize your presentation. Using the free basic account as a student, I created this presentation. Below are the assignment answers: • Prezi (name of tool) • Prezi.com (website) • Cloud storage and can be downloaded for offline use • Offers free trials • Customer support available Origin and Usage Origin & Usage Prezi was founded in 2009, with office locations in Budapest, San Francisco, and Riga.
