Transcript of Using Prezi to Take Your Presentations to New Heights

Using to Take Your
Presentations to New Heights
What IS Prezi?
A free, online, dynamic presentation tool
Why Should I Use It?
It's Free!
It's...
Dynamic!
And...
Visual
And
Prezi lives online,
supporting real-time
sharing and collaboration
And, Prezis can be developed non-linearly, allowing for a freer creative process
Okay, so what
can this thing DO?
As we've already seen,
you can zoom.
A lot.
WAY
in
And
WAY
out!
Tilt
and
rotate
frames
Make
frames in
different
Shapes
And
Sizes
Including
invisible frames
that overlap others
Make different elements
(You can also set a Prezi
to run automatically)
Fade
in
of shapes
and diagrams
Add images from
your computer,
or found online
with the search tool
(with an option
for finding only
rights-free images)
Insert a variety
Save images and other elements
online for later reuse
(including in other Prezis)
Upload
audio
and
video,
including
Youtube
videos
Import
PowerPoint
files
Customize themes to replace the
Prezi logo with
one of your own!
Publish your Prezi,
so anyone can see it
(You can also embed
your Prezi elsewhere)
Download your Prezi to view offline,
and save it as a
PDF to hand out
This all sounds great!
What are the downsides?
For one thing,
Prezi has a
steeper
learning curve
than
PowerPoint
There is not a lot
of on-board help,
and what exists
is not always correct
Zooming and fading
are the only
dynamic features...
It is not possible
to animate elements
If not used sparingly,
zooming
can be annoying,

and even
Cause
ness
sea
sick
Moving and resizing different elements
is often difficult
and frustrating
Text can't be hyperlinked unless it is a full URL

So, Prezi.com doesn't work,
but http://prezi.com/‎ does
Sound can't be
recorded directly,
only uploaded
from your computer
Prezi works inconsistently with different browsers -
Firefox and Chrome
seem to work best
And
Prezi doesn't work
on mobile browsers
(But there is a free iPhone app)
A few tips
Think visually
and dynamically!
Don't overdo zooming -
keep frames the same size
to minimize seasickness
Use a consistent aspect ratio for all your slides
4:3 is standard
To ensure this, hold down the Shift key when creating a new frame
When presenting,
present from a downloaded copy to avoid
connectivity issues
