Go Ahead, Take the PowerPoint -vs- Prezi Challenge
Both of these presentation software/applications are wonderful tools for driving home a message or making a “point” on any subject matter or presentation. Backing up your talk with slides, images, video, audio, and great content isn’t just cool anymore, it’s expected by your audience. Whether it’s one person or one thousand in a crowd, these supporting software’s and applications can make all the difference in the world.
Taking a non bias stand and perspective here, I wanted to share two presentations, both similar in the topic and content but using two separate sites and presentation tools to get their message and point across to their audiences. Both of these are live and available for viewing on the web and were randomly selected for this comparison and evaluation. The question here is which one would you prefer? Watch and Compare!
EXAMPLE POWERPOINT PRESENTATION: ABOUT SYRIA
EXAMPLE PREZI PRESENTATION: ABOUT SYRIA
Alternatives to PowerPoint:
You might consider would be Google Docs, SlideRocket or Keynote etc. Hosting your PowerPoint files on sites like Slideshare.net and SlidePoint.net allows you to access them in the cloud from any remote or mobile location with the added ability to share them with others who can in turn share them with others. Hosting in the cloud and crowd sourcing is awesome.
Additional options for similar sites and tools like Prezi… ummm, well… there’s really none.
