Description: Library staff are often faced with the task of making a presentation. Do you want to change the way you present information and use a more interactive digitally enhanced fun way to do the job? Do you want your presentation to be more visually interesting, unique and engaging? If so, then this course is for you!
The course is designed to teach participants how to use the Prezi software to make outstanding presentations that are different and as an alternative to PowerPoint slideshows. Using a canvas and a unique Zooming User Interface Prezi allows you to present your ideas in a non linear way, to tell a story or present a mind map of complicated concepts. You can insert text, images, files, or embed videos from You Tube as well as turn your PowerPoint presentations into Prezi.
Training documentation and links to useful websites will be provided on the day.
By the end of the course participants will have:
- in-depth knowledge of the Prezi software
- hands-on experience of using Prezi
- the ability to create a Prezi from scratch
- the skills to enhance a Prezi presentation with advanced tools and techniques
- an account in the cloud to store and share your prezis
- the experience of presenting with Prezi
Audience: The course is directed at library staff who make presentations as part of their role. Participants will be asked to register for a prezi account (educational) in advance of the course.
