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.
While hosting and sharing Prezis on prezi.com can get you some exposure, especially if you created a mind-blowing Prezi, another great way to share your Prezi is by embedding it right into your own website or blog. Embedding a Prezi works just like embedding a YouTube video would. In that case, YouTube gives you a block of embed code, you copy and paste it into the HTML of your site or the body of your blog post. And the video player appears on your page, Prezi works the same way. To embed a Prezi you don't need to upload the Prezi itself to your site, it is actually still hosted on prezi.com.
To grab that small bit of HTML start at the your Prezi´s page on prezi.com and then click on the name of the Prezi that you want to embed, and then we are on the preview page here. And, you can click Embed to bring up this new dialog here, and this is a place you can set the width and the height of your embedded Prezi to fit best on your site. This setting is totally up to you depending on the dimensions of your site. If you're not sure about the dimensions, just use the default. You can always edit it later to fit just right. Next, you can decide how you want your site visitors to interact with your Prezi.
You can let them pan and zoom around freely. Or you can constrain them to your path points, walking them through the Prezi in a set sequence. I'll choose that option. And once you've made your choices, click, Copy code to clipboard. And now you can paste the code onto your webpage or blog. One note about blogs and embed code. Some blogging platforms, such as Wordpress, don't like it when you try to enter code into a blog post. It will strip out some of the characters breaking your code. However, most major blogging platforms will have a plug-in to allow Flash imbed code or even specifically Prezi embed code.
WordPress does have a Prezi plug-in available. Here's a Prezi embedded in my WordPress blog. As you can see, embedded Prezis can have very simple navigation. So that visitors can easily click through them without having to know how to use Prezi. And that's it! Another great way to share your Prezis with the world.
