You are a student. You WILL be required to give presentations, there is really no question about that. So here is the real question: Will your presentation be the one that puts the class to sleep, or wakes them up? Sure, a slide show done right can be engaging, but with Prezi – which is free for students – a visually rich production is at your fingertips.
How much is the Prezi educational discount?
Prezi actually has a free account available to everybody. This free account has one catch: all presentations created with it are publicly available. As a student, however, you can sign up for Prezi Enjoy for free. This account gives you 4GB of online storage, and the ability to make your Prezi presentations private. (Standard cost is $4.92/month.)
Prezi Unlimited, which gives you the ability to edit images and work offline, is available for students at $4.92/month. (Standard cost $13.95/month.) There is also unlimited cloud storage, so you can keep every Prezi you make during your four years.
What exactly is Prezi?
It is an online “zooming” presentation. It isn’t that different from the *other* slideshow software in that you click to go to your next image. That’s about where the similarities end. Prezi literally zooms in and out from the images and text you include. You might start on an image of a tiger, and then zoom into the beast’s eye to discuss its night vision. (It’s fun to explore Prezi to see what it can do.)
The biggest difference is in how a Prezi is created, which is more of a mind-map than an outline. Templates are available to fill in and make things especially easy. (And when you are writing that presentation at 2 a.m. the night before it is due, you need easy.)
How to qualify for Prezi student pricing?
Start from Prezi for Education and click “Get Started.” Then you simply sign up for an account with your school email address. From there you can select your plan, and start building the next presentation to make your class say, “Wow!” – or at least help you pass.
