Tried of PowerPoint. Try Prezi to present an idea or tell a story. No only does Prezi use Zooming User Interface (ZUI) to zoom in and out and around but also uses narration which gives new life to a presentation--a visual narrative by capturing not only the visual but the audio. You can add videos, pictures, documents to it. Whereas PowerPoint is so linear Prezi's display presentation moves. An example from the Prezi site:
So if you have to do a presentation try Prezi. In a previous ET class we were asked to create a simple one. It was easy and actually fun to do. I did have a problem when creating this...I didn't think to add sounds, ie the clanking of a fire bell or the sound of harnessed horses pulling a fire wagon. It just was not in my thought process because I am so use to using PowerPoint. Prezi lets you think outside the box!
