Prezi is an online presentation maker that allows you to create unique and fresh presentations in minutes without having any advanced design skills. All you have to do is go to Prezi website, sign up for an account and there you go.
Pros and Cons
What I love about Prezi is that it can create a feeling of movement from slides to slides. Sometimes you can make your audiences feel like they’re lost in a maze jumping from slide to slide. This gives them an interesting experience. But I suggest you should know when to let them go deep in and when to guide them to go out to see the overview of your presentation so that they can keep up with what you’re saying. Sky is the limit when it comes to creativity on Prezi.
Since Prezi is a cloud-based tool, it may load a little bit slowly every now and then.
What You Can Do with Prezi
Using other online presentation tools, you can only create static presentations. However, with Prezi, you create something different, an animated presentation that can be converted into a video. Additionally, you can also add music background to your presentations.
With a little bit of creativity, you can turn your presentation into a masterpiece with Prezi like the following one. This is one of the best Prezi presentations that I’ve seen on the web.
Additional Resources to Best Use Prezi
In order to create effective presentations with Prezi, the first thing you need to do is to create your own story. Great presentations come with great visual storytelling technique.
