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.
I have approached this course with the assumption that you have little to no experience with Prezi, but you want to get started quickly, get a firm grasp of how it works, and you want to walk away with a finished sample presentation. Maybe you have played around with Prezi already but just couldn't intuitively get the hang of the interface. Maybe you are able to create a prezi, but you'd like to make it better. In this course, I'll help you understand the interface from the ground up, giving you some tips and guidelines for planning your prezi and give you a solid overview of what you can do with it and what you can't. You don't need any special knowledge or skills to create a prezi, but an open mind certainly helps.
If you're an old-school PowerPoint or Keynote jockey like myself, the freedom of zooming and panning may be a bit overwhelming at first, but I think that you'll find the ability to arrange your information in a relational way, revealing and grouping information in meaningful ways, is liberating. I should note here, too, that while I'm focusing mainly on traditional presentations in Prezi in this course, Prezi can also be used as a brainstorming or mind-mapping tool to bring a complex infographic to life or even as a collaborative workspace to develop an idea.
So regardless of your experience or lack thereof with Prezi and what platform and browser you're using, you'll finish this course with the information you need to create and publish a finished prezi.
