- [Garrick] Most slide-based presentations, like the ones you create in software like Microsoft PowerPoint, or Apple Keynote, are based on the traditional presentation model that actually predates computers. Namely, displaying your talking points on single slides one at a time in a linear fashion. This kind of presentation style has been, and continues to be, in many cases, perfectly fine and effective, and is sometimes the preferable style for certain types of presentations. But, it's limiting if you're the type of speaker who likes to present conversationally and discuss topics non-linearly, and more organically.
Prezi Next is a unique presentation tool that does allow you to present linearly, but it also provides the freedom to, at any point, seamlessly move to any other part of your presentation, without having to hunt for the slide you need, while potentially losing your audience's attention. Prezi presentations provide a large canvas on which you can display the main points or topics of your presentation, and then zoom in to your topics to talk about their specifics. It allows you to tell a compelling visual story, and helps your audience maintain a strong connection between the big picture, and the details of your talk.
I'm Garrick Chow, and I'm looking forward to taking you through this course, and showing you how to create eye catching and impactful presentations with Prezi Next.
