So, I do Powerpoint – it has become the academic standard for how to keep students and auditors “engaged” and to inform and inspire in ways that appeal from a visual/audio standpoint. Fair enough.
How can we “kick it up a notch”? How can we spice it up even further? Look no further- introducing Prezi – the next big thing in presentation software. And – the most important part – its free!
At some seminars for SPU that I attended recently, many presenters were using Prezi just because it looks cool and does cool things. It can’t do everything that Powerpoint can, but there are some things that will just seem more fluid and visually comprehensible thanks to what Prezi does.
Now, it is not going to replace what I do with Powerpoint. For now I am using Prezi (did my first test-run today at home) for some things that zoom in and out looking at “big picture” sorts of issues.
Anyway, it is worth checking out and at the very least will inspire other developers to compete in the “free” software arena.
After you have tooled around for a while, let me know what you think! Also, if YOU have done any free-for-everyone Prezi stuff (especially in Biblical Studies), do share.
