It’s becoming more common to have presentations in a variety of situations and circumstances. People like visual aids but a poorly designed visual aid can really hinder a message. Powerpoint and Keynote are popular programs to create visual presentations but there is also another option that can really supplement a presentation: Prezi.
Prezi is flexible and can allow you to create a stand-alone presentation or something as simple as an aid for a verbal presentation. To use Prezi, you have to understand their software and how it works, but once you do you can create some stunning presentations.
Here are a few resources to help boost your next Prezi presentation to the next level.
Prezi has its own database of support for beginners to novice users. There are video tutorials and forums to help anyone who would like to use Prezi. Make sure to check it out so that you don’t miss out on anything.
Free Prezi Templates
While it’s neat to design your own template from scratch, not everyone has the time to do so. Prezi offers their own library of templates, but there are also other websites that offer free downloads of Prezi templates to use. There are even some to buy if you so please.
Custom Code Your Prezi
Do you know CSS code? Prezi actually has an option that will allow you to customize the CSS of your Prezi presentation. Just click the “Customize” button at the top of the editor and a sidebar will appear on the right. Scroll to the very bottom and click “Advanced”. The Theme Wizard will appear which will allow you to edit there, but if you click “Use the Prezi CSS Editor” in the bottom center of the Theme Wizard, it pulls up the Edit CSS dialogue box and you can code away!
Think About the Story
What is the message you are trying to portray? What visuals could help you get that message across? Rather than thinking of Prezi like a PowerPoint presentation, think of how you can use its features to your advantage. Think about the visuals that you could include that could help your presentation. Don’t think of only words; think outside the box!
