The daily slide by slide presentations on Microsoft PowerPoint have lost their sheen, no matter how updated they are. Making presentations has taken a new turn with Prezi- A cloud based presentation and storytelling software for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas.
Why is Prezi better than any other presentation tools?
Zoom Outside the Slide
Prezi offline and online employs a tool palette called ZUI- Zooming User Interface, allowing users to zoom in and out of a particular text or image, thereby making the presentation more visually appealing. The navigational tools connect one element to another and find their way IN the presentation canvas by citing a text then going to a video and finally ending on a picture. They are all a part of the presentation and are connected by frames which are grouped together. Presentations on Prezi are move within defined paths as guided by the creator. Unlike PowerPoint, it is much more comprehensive and intriguing for the viewer.
Work and Save Offline
Prezi Desktop allows Prezi Pro and Edu Pro subscribers to work offline and save their confidential work on their Windows and Macintosh systems. The files are saved in .pez format, with an overwhelming capacity of 50MB. All the benefits of the online version are provided on these versions, provided the version is a licensed one.
With Prezi as your primary presentation tool, you can have more than one person editing the presentation. Prezi Collaborate allows upto 10 people who are geographically separated to edit or present presentations in real time. Every person who edits the presentation is shown by a small avatar on the side. This cool feature is available on all versions of Prezi.
