Moving beyond Powerpoint, was the title of this techie brekkie. Although Powerpoint has its place in some presentations, it is certainly true that everyone I know has welcomed the Prezi as a new way of presenting. Prezi is one of the latest presentation tools available on the web. It claims one can ‘Create astonishing presentations live and on the web‘. My experience with Prezi is that it takes a bit of working out and getting used to but that if you give yourself an hour or two it becomes intuitive and simple to work out.
Check out the prezi site for a host of ‘how to’ videos and help guides. View other peoples prezis and decide what elements you like and those you don’t.Prezi is free to use, the sign up and log in is easy to navigate.
I showed my staff the prezi below, it was created by Tomaz Lazic (@lasic on Twitter). Tomaz is an Education Researcher at Moodle Headquarters. Getting my staff to use our moodle site to its fullest potential is an ongoing battle. So showing them this prezi, metaphorically speaking, killed two birds with one stone!
