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.
Earlier in the course, I showed you how to download a portable Prezi. If you followed along, you have one downloaded to your hard drive. You can use this file to present where you don't have reliable access to the Internet, like on an airplane or at a crowded conference. This file is not editable, and requires that you keep it with. The Contents folder, or it won't run. It includes a Mac version and a PC version. I'm on a Mac, so I'll double-click on this one called Simply Prezi. Now, I should mention actually that every portable Prezi has the same name, just the enclosing folder name is unique.
So, you may want to change the Prezi file name to the name of your project to be able to keep track of multiple Prezis. So I'll double-click. And it opens in this small window. Once it's loaded, you can click on this Full Screen icon, and it goes into Full Screen mode. This is native Full Screen mode, so you don't have to worry about that gray bar that appears at the top like you do in the browser. Otherwise all the controls are the same as in the browser, plus if you're a power user, you have the use of keyboard shortcuts. The exit full screen masks over the bottom right corner.
Click Full Screen again. Or you can press Esc on your keyboard. Portable prezis are great for presenting a polished complete presentation, and for distributing to viewers. The controls are intuitive, so they don't need to know how to use Prezi. Just tell them to use their arrow keys to navigate and immerse themselves in your story.
