Creating an Effective Prezi Presentation
is about attention to layout, flow and aesthetics. A good prezi is organized to convey information to the audience efficiently in addition to being visually pleasing.
Frames serve as placeholders for the content of your prezi. They are the "slides" that the prezi software will zoom in on as you move through the presentation.
CREATING A PATH
The path of your prezi will determine the order of the frames. It is important that the path is easy to follow for the audience.
Now that you know how to create your prezi...
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you make your prezi engaging and effective for your audience.
THE FIRST STEP

TIPS AND TRICKS
1. Have a plan
3. Use Prezi to tell a story
6. Use invisible frames
Now you can create your own!
Create a rough sketch or outline of how you want the information to be organized in the prezi before you make it.
4. Don't overcrowd
It is important not to overcrowd your prezi with too much text, too many images or too many frames. It is best to do the minimum to get the information across and add more as you go along if needed.
5. Make transitions smooth
Do not overdo rotations or place path points long distances apart in order to keep your transitions smooth and avoid disorienting the audience.
Choose a template accordingly
Decide on your template early and stick with it as the theme will affect the display of text and frames within your presentation.
Make use of invisible frames to organize and zoom in on information without the added clutter of Prezi's other frame types.
7. Stick to one topic per slide
If you want to emphasize an idea, give it a full slide.
Treat prezi like a spatial narrative that utilizes space to tell a story. Organize the visuals and content within your prezi in a meaningful way for the audience.
