It takes a bit to get used to the underlying concepts of using the Prezi Zebra tool but once you have “it” you will likely find it fun and a nice break from traditional presentation tools. For those who are really adapt at using zoom (scroll on mouse) or on-screen zoom you will love Prezi. The best help files are found right on the Prezi web site. Educators can create a free account but there is also a Pro version if you want to create Prezi presentations off-line, add more security features, or have more storage space online.
