Prezi or PowerPoint - Which is Better for Your Training Presentation?

Prezi is a cloud-cased presentation tool that uses a zooming, three-dimensional interface in place of the typical linear slideshow format used in PowerPoint and Keynote. Using Prezi in the classroom provides several advantages for trainers, but it's not appropriate for every application. Watch a demonstration of what Prezi can and can't do, and see if it might work for your next presentation.

After this session, you'll be able to:

1. Understand the differences between Prezi and PowerPoint

2. Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of using Prezi for training

3. Identify resources for learning more about Prezi
