Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick

Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Prezi is nothing if not divisive. Some people love it, some people hate it - I'm in neither of those camps. I find it very useful in some situations, but still use good old fashioned PowerPoint Slides for more than half the presentations I give. Prezi should be used for a reason.

Prezi is relatively new (it's been around since 2009), it's getting more
popular (there are around 40 million users now) and it's improving its
interface all the time. Some people accuse it of being style


Baiba Svenca's insight:

Great tips and tricks for using Prezi zooming feature.  It's no secret that the audience can get motion sickness if the presenter has overdone it with the zooming effect. How to avoid it? Read the post.

Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and you
