Looking for a new, engaging way to introduce content to your students? Consider using Prezi (Prezi.com).  Last week during our distance education training sessions, we used a Prezi presentation to introduce the main ideas for one of the sessions. Many of the faculty didn’t know about Prezi, so I thought that I would create a blog post to help spread the word about this powerful presentation software.

First, Prezi is an web-based presentation software that allows you to use add images, text, YouTube videos, PDFs, etc to the Prezi canvas. It helps you visualize your ideas, and helps focus attention with the zoom and span capabilities. See below for an example.
