Online Presentation Zooming Tool

What can you use the app for?

Prezi is an application which makes it possible to design presentations online. It’s a unique flash based application that changes how you can create presentations. It means that you don’t need to worry about creating individual slides. You can create non linear presentations and then you can zoom in and out of a map containing all of your information. The application is actually fairly similar to pptPlex which offers a similar type of functionality in PowerPoint.

It’s difficult to explain how to use it, but it’s not difficult to use. The best way to learn how to use the software is to look at the example presentations and have a play with the system yourself.

Prezi is different and so it does take some getting used to, but after a bit of practice you will find that the user interface is quite intuitive. There are also plenty of help videos which will help you to create presentations for the first time.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Prezi was developed by Zui Labs which was formed in 2008; the company has links to Kitchen Budapest media lab which is where the concept for prezi was created. Prezi itself was launched on 15th December 2008 and it still remains in beta.

What are the differences to other apps?

Prezi develops slideshows in a different way, instead of creating slide based presentations you can use this application to create non-linear presentations. It’s possible to zoom in and out of a map rather than moving between slides. When watching presentations the interface is very nice and easy to use, it’s also much more attractive than many other online presentation applications.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The application is designed entirely in flash and it’s a real pleasure to use. It’s quick and snappy although it can take some getting used to. This isn’t because the interface is bad, it’s actually because the concept is completely different. The tool is designed very well and has a nice interface; it just takes some time for people to get used to the idea of a presentation without having to create individual slides. It’s certainly worth it though because you get a much more engaging and interesting presentation than you would otherwise.

If you are struggling to use the system at first then there are plenty of online help videos which are great to make sure you know how to use the application properly.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for an account with prezi is very easy. The very first thing that you need to do is choose a license, there are a number of different packages including a free basic package. Once you have chosen the license you then need to fill out a registration form. When you have filled the form in you will then be sent an email, you need to confirm your address by clicking the link inside the email message.
