Prezi is an online presentation design tool that allows users to create classroom or online presentations. Prezi differs from other presentation tools like PowerPoint in that it does not use slides but rather a navigable virtual canvas. It uses a map layout and zooming to show contextual relationships.
Prezi is an application - an editor that lets you create prezi presentations. However, unlike many applications, Prezi can be used directly from an internet browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari) without the need to install anything. Prezi can also be installed (Prezi Desktop) so you can use it without internet access.
To get started, see our Prezi How-To, which outlines its capabilities more fully and provides links to how-to pages you can use in creating your own presentations.
You can also watch a short introductory video on the Prezi homepage to see these faculties in action.
Here is an example of a full Prezi presentation on the fall of the Roman Empire.
