Prezi: a new concept on in-line presentation and storytelling

Power of storytelling - Prezi is simple: You Write, Zoom, Arrange.Using these simple means, you can express many things - with great impact.Here are some basic examples such as timelines, TOC, Zen likes.


In their words:

"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 (we call this Prezi Desktop) so you can use it without internet access.

We support both ways of working with Prezi, since there are many advantages.

By using Prezi from an internet browser, you can:

  • Easily share your prezis for collaborating with others
  • Easily send your prezis and show them to non-Prezi users
  • Log in from any computer, access your prezis and work on them
  • Our licenses include the ability to export a Portable Prezi, which can be used without internet access so you can safely hold your presentations anywhere


By using Prezi Desktop you can:

  • Work on your prezis without internet access
  • Quickly insert large media files - there is no limit to file size
  • Easily upload prezis to, so you can enjoy all the advantages listed above"
