Pilot: Prezi Presentation Tool

Prezi is a multimedia presentation tool that can be used as an alternative to traditional slide making programs. Instead of slides, Prezi makes use of one large canvas that allows for panning and zooming to various parts of the canvas to emphasize the ideas presented there. IS&T has a limited number of licenses available for faculty, lecturers, and instructors to use during this one-year pilot program.
