Imagine walking into a presentation. It can be an office presentation, a sales presentation, a continuing education credit class, or even a workshop at a conference. Now, when the speaker begins and fires up a PowerPoint does your interest level automatically plummet a couple of notches? Do you start nodding off at the mere thought of bullet point, after bullet point... after bullet point?
Wouldn't you love to never use or sit through another PowerPoint presentation ever again?
Ladies and gentlemen… I give you Prezi.
Come to the this PDI session on creating and presenting with Prezi and you’ll learn a new and visually engaging way to digitally tell a story, present to students, highlight the features and benefits of your department, and just about anything else you’d use PowerPoint for… but in an interesting and fresh way.
You’ll see how Prezi is more intuitive, less linear, ditches the awful transition graphics, and has wonderful depth and fluid movement. Depth? Movement? That’s right. Prezi will better reach your audience in an engaging and interactive way that will make a lasting impact. Does PowerPoint do that for you? I didn’t think so.
In addition to a general introduction, there will be step-by-step instruction. So, feel free to bring a laptop with you and create a Prezi as I present it to you.
Death by PowerPoint? Prezi to the rescue!
