Proposal Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to encourage attendees to consider transitioning or trying to develop Prezi presentations. Survey results from Saint Leo University will provide valuable information pertaining to the current use and familiarity of Prezi on a university campus. Results will be based on responses from both a faculty and student perspective. Prezi can often seem overwhelming because of the creativity level of the program. By introducing a step by step process with importing an existing lecture that has been created in PowerPoint, educators may find that using Prezi in the class room does not have to be overwhelming. A number of questions will be addressed regarding how to import an existing PowerPoint directly into Prezi. The objective is to show how to develop a Prezi presentation by utilizing existing PowerPoint presentations. The experience will hopefully ignite interest for educators when delivering new material.
