Prezi is a web-based tool that allows you to create a presentation using a large, flat canvas for layout. You pan the entire map, zoom in and out to focus on specific items, and visually show relationships between items.
Benefits Over PowerPoint
- Native to the web — easily shared!
- Highly flexible
- Collaborative editing environment
- Use white space
It helps people focus.
- Consider color choices
Light backgrounds with dark text are easiest to read.
- Images, charts and multimedia are your friends
Show, don’t tell.
- Use the zoom and path features to emphasize points.
Do not make people sea sick!
- Vary your font size — smaller or larger — to zoom in or out.
Visually represent details and the big picture.
- Prezi Frames act like graphics to give visual interest.

- Don’t play videos immediately
Add a Frame around your embedded YouTube video, and link to the Frame on your path. This simple step keeps the video from playing automatically.
You can use video, images, color, hyperlinks, file attachment, movement and more to build an engaging Prezi.
Ways to Organize
- Brainstorm your ideas on paper
- Group ideas together
- When you move to Prezi, consider how frames and groupings can create a visual shape when you are zoomed out on the canvas.
