In the spirit of trying to engage with people in diverse ways, I have created my first ever Prezi, which highlights the findings from a really interesting piece of work we’ve been doing for SEI over the past year or so. For those who haven’t come across Prezi, it’s an online presentation tool, which some people as using as an alternative to powerpoint. The advantages of Prezi is that presentations don’t need to be linear, you can design them so that people can explore as they wish. I was inspired to report on our findings using Prezi by the fabulous Ned Potter who works at the University of York (for a great introduction to Prezi, see his “The how to make a great Prezi, Prezi”
It took me rather a long time to get my head around how to create a Prezi, because it’s different to any other software I’ve used before, but once you get the hang of creating frames and positioning them close to each other so that people don’t get sea-sick as Prezi moves from one frame to another, it’s actually quite straightforward.
So, see what you think of mine (SEI Methods of Engagement), and let me know what you think, feedback would be much appreciated! If you’ve got tips for using Prezi then please share them!
NB: We’ve also written a more traditional report, which can be found here
