Prezi and Powerpoint. Let us examine what they are and what they can do for you and your business. Microsoft Powerpoint is a software package designed to create electronic presentations consisting of a series of separate pages or slides. With PowerPoint on your PC, Mac, or mobile device, you can:
– Create presentations from scratch or a template.
– Add text, images, art, and videos.
– Select a professional design with a PowerPoint Designer.
– Add transitions, animations, and cinematic motion.
– Save to OneDrive, to get to your presentations from your computer, tablet, or phone.
– Share your work and work with others, wherever they are.
Powerpoint is especially useful for website owners, as presentations can be uploaded to Slideshare and then can be embedded into a webpage. Here is an example from my Slideshare account
Prezi is a presentation tool that can be used as an alternative to traditional slide making programs such as PowerPoint. Instead of slides, Prezi makes use of one large canvas that allows you to pan and zoom to various parts of the canvas and emphasize the ideas presented there. Prezi supports the use of text, images, and videos and also provides a collection of templates to choose from to help new users get accustomed to the interface. In 2019 they launched Prezi Video, which was the first widely available tool on the market that allows for virtual presentations within the video screen of a live or recorded video. The word “Prezi” is the short form of “presentation” in Hungarian.
These presentations are particularly good for brainstorming, mind mapping, and real-time collaboration. They can create highly visual and engaging presentations that are non-linear. They encourage you to interact with the presentation to open up other parts of it. They are thus good for describing complex relationships. Powerpoint on the other hand is very good for linear straightforward presentations. Prezi presentations can also be embedded into websites. So which one you choose largely depends on the complexity of the presentation you want to create. For more information, please do a href=”https://www.gentsclub.us/contact/”>Contact me
