In this course, author and sought-after presenter Lisa Larson-Kelley introduces Prezi, a cutting-edge tool for creating dynamic presentations. Discover how to add layers of meaning to static presentations with multimedia, spatial relationships, and movement.
The course demonstrates the features and benefits of an effective Prezi presentation, shows how to navigate the user interface, and explains how to create, animate, share, and publish a prezi. Plus, Lisa shows how to present your prezi to a remote audience, via a web browser or your desktop.
Since Prezi is a cloud service, you'll need to register and create an account on Prezi.com to get started. To start the process, click on one of the Sign up buttons here on the homepage on Prezi.com. This takes you to a page showing your license options. There are various licenses available depending on your needs. The Prezi public license is free. This makes it very easy to get started, and maybe the only license you need. If you find you need more features, such as private prezi's, custom logos on your prezi's or more storage space, you'll want to upgrade to the paid Enjoy or Pro licenses.
With all license levels you can share your prezi's with others so they can work with you, or simply view your prezi's online. As of this recording, these licenses are billed on a yearly recurring basis. All license levels come with a 30 day free trial of Prezi Desktop software, which allows you to create an edit prezis when you don't have internet access. I'll be covering that tool later in the course. But we'll be focusing on the free online version through most of the exercises. If after the 30 day trial to Prezi Desktop, you find you need it You're going to have to spring for a Pro license.
Good news though, if you're a student or a teacher, there are discounts available. All you need is an email address from an educational institution, and you get the enjoy level of licensing for free and a healthy discount on a pro-license. If you're not a student, you could look into the group licenses where you can buy Presi accounts at a bulk discount and get everyone in your company or organization building zoomable presentations. Once you register an create your account you can always upgrade later. So let's get started by choosing the free option. I'll go ahead an click through to that. And you have a couple of options here.
I'll scroll up to the top and click Log in. I'll enter my e-mail and password and click Log in. Now when you log into your Prezi account, you're taken to this customized homepage where you can create a Prezi, or access all of the online Prezis that you've created. Now you're ready to create a new Prezi and get familiar with the canvas and tools.
