Transcript: There is not a one stop shop for presentation software. With that said, I believe Prezi is a great and fun way of creating and presenting presentations. The vibe of Prezi compared to others is certainly different. Personally, I would not pay money for Microsoft Office (which includes PowerPoint), but instead opt for the free options. A bonus is that MHCC offers Microsoft Office for free! Prezi v. PowerPoint, Keynote, and Impress Apple Keynote has spectacular animations, templates, and a simple to use interface. It is capable of importing, editing, and saving PowerPoint files. Although Apple Keynote only comes with Mac and iOS devices, with the power of the cloud, it is easily accessible across all devices (including Windows). This is a great offline solution to Prezi. OpenOffice Impress OpenOffice Impress is basically a copycat of PowerPoint. It has all of the features that PowerPoint offers, minus some templates. For free, there are not really any cons. The same cons that were said for PowerPoint can be said to Impress also. This is a great offline software solution, as it is free. From what one would expect, free does not come with anything fancy. When one stumbles across the word PowerPoint, an instant connection is made on what it is. This is mainly why it is so popular and widely used. When compared to Prezi, it looks dull and boring. Because of this, many people hate the idea of presentations being relied heavily on PowerPoint. There are many animations and templates, but it does not fare well when compared to Prezi. PowerPoints can be opened on any software. Microsoft PowerPoint Prezi Prezi incorporates what you call "fun" animations, templates, and user interface. This attracts a wide audience and retains the attention of many, whereas normal presentation software, most people would get bored of it. Since it is on the cloud, it can be accessed anywhere. In addition to that, collaboration is easy. However, one must pull out a credit card as a form of payment in order to gain more features, such as a control of privacy. Apple Keynote

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
