Prezi

Principal function(s): Slide presenting

Prezi is a software for creating interactive presentations. Instead of using traditional slides, Prezi is based on a zooming user interface to navigate through content on a virtual canvas. Users can add text, images, videos, and other multimedia elements to their presentations. It offers both free and paid versions. Signing up for an account is required for use. Prezi was founded in 2009 by Adam Somlai-Fischer, Peter Halacsy, and Peter Arvai and is developed by Prezi Inc. Evaluation: Prezi is a valuable tool for producing interactive and visual presentations. Its zooming user interface differentiates it from other similar tools. The free version allows storing a few presentations and can be accessed on any device, yet not downloaded. A downside of Prezi’s free version is that presentations can be found and accessed by any user. Average IT skills required.

Cost: Free public account + Paid premium plans
