Everything is moving to the cloud, and now your presentations can too! Prezi is presentation software that allows you to create and design an interactive demonstration. With an open canvas, you can easily create and visualize your ideas onto one screen. It is easy to incorporate media such as images, videos, YouTube, and more. You can choose from different templates or from scratch (however I would suggest having some type of outline or structure if you are starting from scratch). One of the neat aspects of Prezi is that you can present online and you have the option to download if you need.
There are 3 options for using Prezi. The first is FREE and it includes their core features and 100MB of storage. The second, Pro, is $59 a year. You get 500MB of space and you can make your presentations private. Also, you can use your own logo instead of Prezi’s. The third option, Pro, is $159 a year with 2GB of storage, private access, your own logo, online support and Prezi desktop for offline use. They also provide special options for students and teachers.
Setting up an account: Once you decide what version you want (free or pro), you can create an account, or set up an account by using your Facebook login information.
Learning the Ropes: Now that you have an account you can start creating your Prezi. They provide step-by-step tutorials that walk you though editing, adding, grouping, and publishing. Check out some of the Video tutorials here.
Collaboration: You can allow others to edit your Prezi. You can share a link that Prezi provides, and a max of 10 users can work together online.
PowerPoint Integration: You can import your PowerPoint presentation and use the slides in your Prezi!
Prezi’s are innovative and really grasp the attention of your audience.
