Yes, I'm using the internet's catch phrase to get your attention. But, that's what every good presentation should do. We've seen a bazillion PowerPoint presentations and we can pretty much name the template used as soon as it opens. Then, it follows the same linear path, with bullet points, images and charts. Prezi.com gives you another option for presentation.
Imagine a piece of paper that has an image on it to provide a "big picture" view of an idea. Then you notice a bunch of little bits of text scattered around and on the image. You click and your view zooms in to text about that area. Then you click again, and move to the next concept. Imagine this littered with text, images, graphs and even embedded video.
Prezi doesn't follow the linear path that PowerPoint or Keynote does. It allows you to zoom in, out and around to better represent your message. You can use a predesigned template if you need some help getting started, or start from a blank canvas.
Prezi is online and accessible via a web browser, desktop app for Windows or Mac, iPad or iPhone, and Android. If you are presenting face-to-face, you can present full screen. If on a conference call, you can share a link to your presentation. You control the presentation as others watch via the web link. You can also choose to share a link for the viewers to watch and advanced on their own. Prezis can made public for everyone to find and watch, hidden for only those with the URL, or kept private for you only.
Here is a sample of what you can do. If you want to learn more, come to my session with ATD-Lincoln on October 15th.
