Zooming Presentations Things to know about PREZI Prezi is a cloud based presentation
software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. What is PREZI? The RESULT? Visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery Prezi co-founder, Adam Somlai-Fischer, is an internationally renowned architect and visual artist who has been working with zooming presentations since 2001. Adam found that a zoomable user interface (ZUI) enabled him to explore the “big picture” overview of a floor plan and then zoom into the detail of individual rooms. Because there was no commercially-available zooming presentation editor, each presentation had to be coded by hand. Audiences were wowed and approached Adam to discover what presentation software he used. A few persuaded him to give them access to his code. Finally, in 2007, Budapest University of Technology professor Peter Halacsy convinced Adam to develop an editor so that anyone could make zooming presentations. After creating a prototype, serial entrepreneur Peter Arvai joined as the third founder and CEO to help them build a product and a company. Prezi was launched in April 2009 from Budapest, leading to investments from TED Conferences and Sunstone Capital. The San Francisco office was established in November 2009. Who founded PREZI? Prezi is an online tool. What does this mean? Prezi is an application - an editor that lets you create prezi presentations. However, unlike many applications, Prezi can be used directly from an internet browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari) without the need to install anything. Prezi can also be installed (we call this Prezi Desktop) so you can use it without internet access. By using Prezi from an internet browser, you can: 1.Easily share your prezis for collaborating with others
2.Easily send your prezis and show them to non-Prezi users
3.Log in from any computer, access your prezis and work on them
4.Our licenses include the ability to export a Portable Prezi, which can be used without internet access so you can safely present your prezis anywhere
By using Prezi Desktop you can: 1.Work on your prezis without internet access
2.Quickly insert large media files - there is no limit to file size
3.Easily upload prezis to Prezi.com, so you can enjoy all the advantages listed above
Getting Started Use your mouse:
scroll to zoom, drag to pan You can use your mouse to zoom and pan in prezi. To pan the canvas in Edit or Show mode, press and hold the mouse button while moving the mouse. Use the scroll button on your mouse to point to and zoom to an object. The zebra is your best friend in Prezi. Once you add anything to the canvas, click once on it to bring up the zebra, allowing you to move, scale, and rotate any content you have selected. By using frames, you can click once on the frame to bring up the zebra to move, scale or rotate everything inside at once. Get to know the zebra Path Points: Navigate and rearrange with path sidebar When presenting on a stage, it can help to have a narrative in your prezi. With the Path tool, you can create a path to follow while you present (after going into Show mode).

To set your path, select the path button from the bubble menu, then click on objects in your prezi canvas in the order you wish them to appear when viewing.
Creating a path is a whole lot easier using the path sidebar. When you add a path point (using the path button from the bubble menu) - it automatically creates a thumbnail on the sidebar to the left of your canvas.
Click on a thumbnail in the sidebar to zoom to your path point, or rearrange and delete path points with a single click! When you open a prezi, you can choose between 5 reusable templates or a blank canvas. When choosing a template, you can edit everything you see on the canvas just as if you were creating your own prezi, including copy/pasting pre-made content you would like to duplicate. Start from a template “Steal” from reusable prezis: reuse Reuse allows you to share ideas more effectively and helps you get started by saving an editable copy of another user’s prezi. Through reuse, you can borrow assets, animations or sound effects you see in another prezi. Select a reusable prezi from the Explore page, then click Make a Copy to create a copy of it in Your Prezis page. Home button: Anchor yourself on the canvas Reuse allows you to share ideas more effectively and helps you get started by saving an editable copy of another user’s prezi. Through reuse, you can borrow assets, animations or sound effects you see in another prezi. Select a reusable prezi from the Explore page, then click Make a Copy to create a copy of it in Your Prezis page. Insert a Drawing Prezi designers created 12 premade drawings, diagrams, and charts that can help in many types of presentations. Quickly add content to your reusable drawings, and duplicate (using the right click menu or keyboard shortcuts) your drawings to quickly populate your prezis. Draw shapes: arrow, marker, pencil Choose Insert > Shapes from the bubble menu to add shapes, lines, arrows, and more to your prezi. Use rectangles, circles, and triangles to draw gemoetric shapes; use Arrows to show relationships between ideas; highlight text with the Highlighter. Jot down ideas and make sketches with the Pencil. Path Points: Navigate and rearrange with path sidebar To create live links in your prezi that open when clicked, copy the desired URL, paste it into a text box and click OK. Save your prezi and click Exit. When you return to the prezi, the link will be live. Reduce clutter: hidden frames Hidden frames help you organize content without the added visual weight of frames. This is ideal for highlighting details on a large image or block of text. To add a hidden frame to your prezi, select Frame/Hidden and then click on the canvas and drag your cursor around the content you want to frame. Hidden frames appear as a dashed blue outline. Layer text and objects: send backward, bring forward The ability to send objects backward or bring them forward allows you to layer items in your prezi. This is particularly useful when you have a frame around several items or a background image that overlaps with objects in your prezi. To Send Backward or Bring Forward, click on an item to get the zebra and then right click on it to access secondary editing options. Get to know the zebra Use size and rotation to convey meaning In Prezi, you can use size and rotation to emphasize a point. Use the zebra to make your main points larger and the details smaller. In addition, you can rotate text and objects to help the audience visually experience circularity, curvature, and, of course, rotation. Rotation is also meaningful when representing nonlinear concepts such as turning a corner or looking at something upside down. Make smooth transitions Creating smooth transitions from one path point to the next is an essential part of creating a good prezi. Some general tips include:
1. Not overdoing rotation - it can make audiences seasick
2. Showing an overview often to give the audience a context
3. Creating path points near each other (rather than zooming back and forth between opposite sides of the canvas) Thank you for LISTENING :) DEMONSTRATION...
