What are the implications for Teaching, Learning and Assessment?
Prezi makes for an interesting alternative to Powerpoint that allows you to move away from traditional slide-based format seen in other presentation software. Prezi allows you to create more exciting and engaging presentations, though it is worth noting that a little goes a long way and a presentation can easily induce motion sickness in viewers if too much movement in used (especially twists and spins).
Being an online service the presentation can be run from anywhere with an internet connection as well as being able to be embedded into web pages like you would a YouTube video.
