“Death by PowerPoint.”
We’ve all heard of it. We all fear it. We’ve all experienced it.
We know the problem, but what’s the solution? PowerPoint seems like a necessary evil. But, is it?
The alternative is a free, easy-to-use, online tool called Prezi. If you have an outline, you have your presentation! Prezi visually represents concepts in a dynamic mind map or concept map. On the canvas, your high-level items are organized together in one screen, and you can zoom into the supporting elements easily. Use of graphics, color, animations, video, and more provide interest for your viewers. Prezi makes following best practices for presentations easy, encouraging styling text large enough to read, and minimizing the amount of text on the screen. The built-in feature of drilling into details and pulling back to the main ideas displays a clear structure of your concepts. Once you get your hands on Prezi, your presentations will never be the same.
Could it now be, the “Death of PowerPoint”?
