Prezis are like PowerPoints in that they are a visual representation of your information, and we often use them for presentations, both online and in person. However, Prezis differ from PowerPoint in style and layout. They can be 3D and can offer a fresh alternative to PowerPoint presentations.

The same basic presentation rules apply to Prezi presentations: keep the text to a minimum; add visuals; be clear with your message. However, in some ways, Prezis can give you a little more flexibility with your presentations, as you can manipulate all parts of a “slide” or “frame” and even embed “slides” within others. And you can add images or “slides” wherever you like.

Prezi has a free version, which allows you to use the program and save your presentations to the web. All you have to do is create an account.

If you are new to Prezi but are interested in giving it a try, check out this helpful video on how to get started with your first Prezi presentation.
