What is a prezi?
- “Prezi” at http://prezi.com/ is a Web 2.0 tool that combines concept maps, posters, and presentations, all into one
- It allows us to create non-linear presentations where we can zoom in and out of a visual map
containing words, links, images, and videos
- This way “big picture” overviewscan be given, as well as zooming in to view extreme details related to
- So instead of slides, we create a large map (or canvas) and basically zoom around it while we do our presentation
- It is like Powerpoint, but with more powerful and interesting features
- Presenters can focus on combining text, images and multimedia
- Items on the canvas can be dragged, tilted and zoomed to create an engaging presentation
- A "path" can link the different elements on the stage to create an animation
Why use it?
- Prezi has the "wow" factor that is new and visually exciting
- Only limited text can be used due to the "canvas" layout
- Images, sound and videos can be used in one presentation
- Most importantly, it is easy to use!
