Prezi is a great alternative to using Powerpoint or other standard presentation lectures in your class. It is a cloud-based software that creates interesting, fluid, and animated presentations that will keep your students' attention. I have had great success with using these presentations in class.
If you want to see a SHORTENED, preview version of the presentation in order to get a sense of the animation, copy and paste the following link into your address bar:
The file that you receive will be a zip file that is completely self-contained. Simply extract the file, and play the presentation. There is no need for a Prezi account or any additional software.
This particular Prezi deals with narrowing topic focus and finding a manageable topic for an MLA research paper.
