Levelling up your presentations with Prezi

Today I made my first Prezi🙂 I always found embedding video clips in PowerPoint  to be such a drag. Often you put your clips in the same folder as your presentation file and link it properly and when the big presentation day comes, it won’t work. Prezi is definitely a solution in that department. You can also embed YouTube videos and invite peers to collaborate on a presentation with you. What I like most about it, is the variety of social media sharing options available. I prezi-fied the first few slides of my Twitter presentation. I’m sure you will notice that unlike PowerPoint’s linear style, Prezi has much more visual appeal. Your prezi also autosaves as you work on it.When you sign up for Prezi, don’t forget to use your varsity email and get the EduEnjoy license. This allows you to use your own logo (rather than the Prezi watermark), download your Prezi for offline presentation and you get 500 MB of online storage space. And best of all, it’s FREE!!!

And if you want to embed your Prezi in a free WordPress blog like this, check out these tips for editing the embed code via Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s Technology Teacher blog.

    Hey Nicci,

    Thanks for the post!

    I tried prezi once before, but somehow gave-up as it seemed quite complex and I didn’t have so much time. I didn’t try again after that. Is it quite user-friendly for people who are not that tech-savvy? 🙂

    Oh, and any new info on present for marion? When do you think will you want to give her something?

    And how is life? And how are you? Still on cloud 7 :-)?

    Have a nice evening!

      Hi Mareike:) I went to a Prezi workshop today presented by Rulisha Chetty from CET. I found it very helpful, as I did not manage on my own at first and I’ve still got lots to learn. I think it takes time, but there seem to be a lot of advantages (embedding videos, social media sharing, etc). Glad you are still on cloud 9 after your hand-in – now you have more time to play with Prezi:) Like with your research, you could have a phone and each button could be a slide or something and the screen of the phone can be your research question that you answered in your thesis or your title. People have done such creative stuff, it’s fun just going through other people’s prezis. RE Marion present – we can gtalk and email the digimobsters🙂
