Visualize and present by zooming


Lately I have been testing a new presentation tool : “Prezi”

You actually make your whole presentation on one big sheet, but use zooming techniques to shift focus and images etc. This means that your text can be used as a part of the bigger picture whilst zooming out, and when zooming in it might give the content a whole different meaning.

I really like the ability it gives to be more creative when designing a presentation, and also use forms and shapes to underline the headlines.

On the other hand, this sets new demands to preparations before actually making the presentation when it comes to the design of it.

I was about to embed an example of a presentation I have made, but don`t allow Flash embeds.

But here is the link to a presentation I have made – it is in Norwegian, but for you not Norwegian -speaking out there I guess you still get the idea of the tool 🙂

What do u think ?:) Do you like the presentation form ?

  1. Nice Prezi! I have used it for about a year now as a teacher and the students find it interesting and a nice switch from dreary PPT. The great thing about Prezi is that they opened up for Educational Accounts now which means that educators get more space and they can share and reuse other teachers/students/instructors’ prezis. Great fun!

    Still some issues with bugs, formatting and navigation, but all in all a very good tool in my opinon.


  2. Thanks 🙂 I liked your Prezi (on your blog) as well 🙂
    I have not thought about the dimension your bringing in by sharing and reusing the presentations, – but that is really a great thing. For students, teachers and also in business environments. Instead of cutting and pasting and fixing slides, you can just decide what path you want to use and which elements you want to bring in in your presentation. Quick and easy 😉
