Effective Presentations with Prezi
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Prezi is a free online tool for creating and showing presentations. It breaks from the bulleted-list approach of Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote. Unlike other presentation software that uses slides, Prezi presentations are more similar to concept maps or poster presentations. This two-part workshop will begin with a demonstration and discussion of how Prezi is conceptually different from other presentation software. The second part of the workshop is hands-on. Participants will use the ideas presented in the workshop to create their own Prezi. We ask that participants create a free, educational Prezi account before attending the workshop by filling out the form at: Please feel free to stop by CIRT if you’d like help creating your account.
