Prezi help

September 2, 2009

I love that so many of you have started to use Prezi. It is such a cool presentation tool. I have added the link to the prezi manual on the resources page.

Remember! When you are downloading your finished Prezi presentation, it will be in a zipped file. You need to have winzip installed to unzip the file in order to show your prezi on an offline computer. Once you have the winzip, it’s easy to do. Winzip is available here if you are on the KIS network, or here to download.

Ask me if you need help!
