Tool Review: Prezi

A link to my first Prezi (Organelles of the Prokaryotic Cell)

Pros: Animation between points catches the viewers attention, easy to get started (if you’ve seen Prezi’s in action before), many elegant templates.

Cons: Time-consuming to create (for my first try), frames lock onto objects and cannot be manipulated without affecting contents, conversion to PDF or export does not support embedded video.

Overall Impression: Nice change from traditional PowerPoint slides, but I wouldn’t convert every note to the Prezi format. I will definitely be using these for short topics as a nice change of pace for students.
