Prezi – They say necessity is the mother of all inventions, and the guys at Prezi felt there was an urgent necessity to adopt a new approach when it comes to presentations. For the most part, conventional presentations revolve around slides and add-ins that often distract the viewer rather than keep him on track with the presentation’s main idea. What if the presentation was formed on a single interactive canvas, where the lecturer could easily zoom into and out from certain points of interest and emphasize others without needing to rely on separate slides?
Prezi is an innovative presentation platform that makes sure your underlining presentation objective is achieved; conveying an idea in a seamless flow from start to finish. The added bonus is that this presentation format makes the telling of a visual story to your audience possible, and therefore, has greater impact. As the Prezi team claims, they want to bring back the pleasure into creating presentations. There’s no doubt about it – creating presentations with Prezi is fun and will definitely motivate your creativity. The best way to grasp Prezi’s innovative concept would be via their showcase page. Here are my fave Prezi presentations: The Simpsons and BetaWorks (loved the quotes).
