Thoughts on Using Prezi as a Teaching Tool

Do you feel that slides limit your ability to develop and explain ideas? Then maybe it's time you try Prezi.

Prezi is a free, web-based, application which allows you to design non-linear presentations online. They offer a free version (and a fee-based version), it's simple to use, and you'll never need to create individual slides again.

Prezi allows you to zoom in and out, add graphics, and video(s) to your presentation. It’s difficult to explain how to use it so I recommend that you look at the example presentations and play with the system yourself. Prezi is different and so it does take some getting used to, but after some practice you will find that the user interface is quite intuitive. You can also find plenty of help, i.e. videos, forums, Twitter, and blogs, which will help you create your presentations.

Watch the Prezi below (or HERE) to get a perspective on how to use Prezi as a teaching tool:
