Make engaging, effective visuals presentations with Prezi. This tool comes with a ton of unique presentation templates to help you get started.
Who Prezi is For:
Prezi is for people who want to make amazing presentations without the need for design skills. It’s also for those who want a unique PowerPoint alternative. You can make an engaging Prezi without ever even considering the use of bullet points.
Prezi is kind of difficult to use. It’s tough to figure out how it works initially because it is different. You’ll probably want to start with a template and try to map out the main points of your presentation before you get going.
With Prezi, there’s nothing to download, you’ll access the application entirely online.
Prezi allows you to set-up your presentation from a bird’s eye view. As you click through your presentation, you’ll end up narrowing down your topic. It really is a unique tool. Nothing else has that built-in ability to go from broad to narrow and visualize it. Prezi also comes with many templates to help you get started.
The constant zooming in and out might give some viewers a little motion sickness. I like how you can go from a bird’s eye view of your presentation to more specific details, but some people will complain about the effect.
