Transcript of 11. Keep your structure standardized. 

11. Keep your structure standardized. 
If you are using specific styles of frames to highlight your important ideas, stick to using those throughout your entire presentation. The same goes for colored text and other stylistic objects. A sense of design unity throughout the presentation will leave a stronger lasting impression and convey information more clearly.

4. Let the audience ask questions. 
Because Prezi is not composed of slides, it’s very easy to move around the presentation. Use this ability to clarify audience questions and to easily backtrack to missed information. Zoom out to quickly find sections of your presentation that relate to the questions being asked.

3. Take your time. Don’t rush through the frames during your presentation. Allow the audience time to process the information, and to settle from the previous transition. If you go too fast, the transitions will become overbearing.

1. Open the Path editor. In the Edit screen, click the “Edit Path” button on the left side of the workspace. This will allow you to start creating your path. Click on your first object, and then simply click on each consecutive object in the order that you want to present them.

9. Create a uniform style. Prezi doesn’t use font sizes, which can make it difficult to get headings and paragraphs to feel uniform. In order to match size, select the text that you need to resize. As you move the mouse to change the size of the text, look at the text that you are trying to match it to. Once the two are the same, the text that you don’t have selected will become darker, signifying that the two are the same size.

7. Use frames to create focus. Frames come in two forms in Prezi: visible and invisible. Visible frames highlight the object on the screen, and include a circle, brackets, and a filled oblong shape. Invisible frames allow you to define objects and sets of objects as the focus. Both types of frames will let you control how much zoom and object receives.

4. Make sure your images are high resolution. If you are going to be focusing on images in your Prezi, remember that they will take up the entire screen when zoomed in on. This means that lower quality images that look good as a part of a webpage will look grainy when they are scaled up to fit the screen.

1. Select your theme. When you first create your new Prezi, you will be asked to choose a template. The template of your Prezi defines how the text, colors and objects will all interact on the landscape. You can pick between 2D and 3D template. 2D themes are flat and the camera moves across the canvas. 3D themes allow you to zoom in and out of the background.

2. Download the iPad app. If you want to share your Prezi with a small audience, you can use the iPad to make it more interactive for the viewer. You can download the Prezi app for your iPad and iPhone. The app is free and lets you access your Prezi from anywhere that your device has internet access.You can navigate the Prezi by swiping your fingers and pinch-zooming.

Products and Features

1. Practice your presentation . Before presenting your Prezi, run through it a few times to make sure that it flows well. Practice your timing for moving between frames. Ensure that everything receives the correct focus and that your transitions are not too jarring.

3. Finalize your path at the end of your project. 
Don’t get too hung up on your pathing while you are adjusting your layout. Get the layout solid first, and then go through and set your final path. This will make organizing your content much easier.

10. View your Prezi while zoomed out. A good Prezi will be able to be understood when the presentation is zoomed all the way out. This means that your key points should be large enough to be read when the camera is pulled back. They should also be aligned in a way that makes logical sense.

5. Leave space around your objects. If you leave a fair amount of white space around your objects, Prezi will be able to easily focus on them when the camera zooms in. This will help make the text or image stand out to the audience.

To add text, simply double click anywhere in your Prezi. This will create a text box and you can begin typing or copy text from the clipboard. To split up a large block of text, select the text that you want to move and drag it elsewhere in the Prezi.

2. Start placing your objects. Be sure to begin with the main points of your presentation. These will be the centerpieces of each section. You can add text, images, and other objects anywhere on the canvas. Continue to refer to your plan as you begin laying out the Prezi on the screen.

5. Start big. Because you have an essentially limitless canvas, make your focal points big to begin with. Then, as you add more details, you can add smaller objects and use small amounts of zoom to focus on them.

4. Keep your paths steady. When you are planning out your Prezi, think about how you will be moving the camera over your landscape. Because Prezi allows for full zooming and rotations, there is a temptation to change the perspective often during a presentation. This can lead to motion sickness in the viewer, and distracts from the content of the presentation.

3. Think of your Prezi in terms of the "path". The path is how the presentation transitions from frame to frame. Instead of going in a linear motion, the path can be set in any order, and the "camera" will move around the presentation as it follow the path.

2. Set the foundations with your main points. Use the main points of your presentation as the anchors for the path your Prezi will take. Think of these main points as “focal” points; you will be focusing on these and using the surrounding landscape to build on them frame by frame.

1. Sketch out your concept. The underlying functionality of Prezi means that you do not have to think in linear slides as you would PowerPoint. You are free to move the frame around your presentation landscape however you feel is best. This means, however, that a Prezi that is not planned properly from the beginning can quickly become a jumbled mess with no sense of direction.

Visit the Prezi website. The bulk of your work with Prezi will occur in the online editor. Prezis are saved to the cloud and can be accessed anywhere that has an internet connection.

How to Use Prezi

Zui’s use zooming as the main metaphor for browsing through  hyperlinked or 
multivariate information. Objects present inside a zoomed page can in turn be zoomed themselves to reveal further detail, allowing for recursive nesting and an arbitrary level of zoom.

is a virtual whiteboard that transform presentations from monologues into conversations: enabling people to see, understand, and remember ideas.

Uses of Prezi

2. Navigate the path. When you are presenting, clicking Next will take you to the next stop on the path. If you want to zoom out, scroll around, or click on other parts of the presentation, all you need to do is click the Next button to return to the path.

Method 4 of 5: Creating a Path

You can return to the overview by creating an invisible frame around the entire project. Link to this frame when you want to pull back and show the whole project. This is especially useful when transitioning between major points.

8. Use frames to highlight a portion of text. If you have a paragraph of text in one frame, and want to highlight a key segment of it, create a frame around the text that you want to highlight. Create a path to it, and the camera will zoom in on just the framed text. This is useful for noting key figures or powerful phrases in a block of text.

3. Manipulate your objects. Once you have an object on the canvas, click on it to open the Transformation Tool. The object will be highlighted by a box surrounded by tools to modify the object.
