As cool as it is, there is such a thing as too much Prezi zoom. If you’ve ever sat through a presentation that felt more like a rollercoaster ride than a speech, you know what we mean. That 180º flip may feel from the stage, but you don’t want to send your audience running for motion sickness bags...

Baiba Svenca's insight:

Zooming feature is what makes Prezi different from many other presentation tools. But do you know how to use it properly? Here's a post that is going to help you.

Slatebox lets you create mind maps and infographics easily and without registration. If you want to work in a small team, register and invite collaborators (up to 3).
