Prezi tips from thewikiman [sic]

8 11 2011

I am working on improving the Kaptur Prezi (still very much a work in progress but this process itself has been an aid to conceptualising the project). I was having problems with creating links in Prezi, and after a Google search was taken to a ‘how-to’ Prezi by thewikiman.

So, some Prezi tips from thewikiman that I found helpful:

  • ‘Your URL changes when your title changes so make sure you have a title you’re happy with before you make the link public!’
  • Link to JISC TechDis Web2Access report on Prezi Accessibility
  • Using hidden frames to create a more interactive Prezi – I have used hidden frames but not really thought of Prezi in this way -see thewikiman’s interactive library map Prezi
  • Really useful link about using Prezi in learning and teaching in the US – blog post by Hal Kirkwood, SLA blog, 16 May 2011
    Quote from the blog post:

    ‘It allows for a much deeper opportunity to create more conceptually interesting presentations. Students pay attention more…they are more focused on the material…they want to try it. Information literacy becomes more engaging using Prezi.’

The problem with my Prezi links…
I had already tried the usual exit and back to edit etc, but I think the problem was due to the long list of links – the top one in the list was fine but the rest weren’t hyperlinked. I solved it by entering a new text item for each separate link, although Prezi didn’t like the Twitter link at all, maybe because of the characters ‘#!’.
