Web 2.0 Presentations!
Jeff McCoy

Are you tired of creating PowerPoint after PowerPoint, or having to grade your student’s PowerPoint presentations? You might want to try www.prezi.com. On a recent business trip, a colleague of mine introduced me to Prezi. Prezi is an online presentation tool that allows users to create, store and present their content online. No need to have a pen drive, just have access to the internet. Of course, if you do not have internet access, you are able to download your presentations in flash format to a pen drive.

Prezi is free for up to 100 MB of storage. As long as users don’t exceed 100MB, there are no fees. If you find yourself needing more space, you can always purchase more space. Getting started is easy. Just click the sign up link at the top right hand side of the page. You will receive a confirmation email to verify your email. After that, time to get started!!

Prezi has multiple templates and styles to choose from. Simply choose your template/style and Prezi will guide you through the rest of the process to create your online presentation. Your presentations are all online to be accessed anywhere and anytime you need them. Again, you can download a copy of the presentation in flash format to your computer.

Your students will enjoy a change from the traditional PowerPoint presentations.

Great post thanks!

Did you know that you can now win a free Prezi account by creating the best Halloween prezi of 2009?

More information here: http://blog.prezi.com/2009/10/21/looking-for-the-best-halloween-prezi-of-the-year/

I had heard of this but your post reminded me of it so I went to have a look. I played with it some and decided to pay to get three months of the Pro level (which includes an offline Adobe Air program to create and edit presentations.) It’s a little expensive with the current exchange rate, and it would be nice if they offered an educator price. We have talked a little about cloud computing in my IB ITGS class and I had the students take a look at it Friday in class. Unfortunately the log in is over a https connection so the students couldn’t log in to play with it but they were interested in the demos on the site and the sample I showed.

I like that it is a nice way to develop ideas in a non-linear way. I’m doing a workshop on developing a mobile website for other school webmasters in Nov. and plan on using Prezi rather than powerpoint. I’ll let you know how it goes.

BTW, do you have a Google Wave account yet? Just received my acceptance this week and need to find some folks that have it.
