After doing many presentations and watching just as many, I had been getting extremely sick of PowerPoint. I wanted something new, fun and exciting and when Alec told the class about an online tool called Prezi, I knew this would be the next way I would do a presentation. Prezi is a map, outlining where we are going with our presentation. It is clean and simple but I think the way it moves from slide to slide is very intriguing. I was also impressed with the entering of videos off YoutTube because all you do is drop the URL into the text box, and you get the video right on your presentation; easy as that! For the user it does take some time getting to know how to use it, but after watching a few tutorials, and spending some time playing around with it I understood it.
My group and I used this for our ECS 100 presentation on Cliques in the Classroom, and it was very well recieved. Next time you need to make a presentation with a neat visual aspect to it, try using the free online tool Prezi!
Here is the link for our presentation.
