Example: Prezi

Prezi allows users to create powerpoints that can zoom in and out, rotate and move around. The presentation is viewable by the public and can by presented inside a browser.

Prezi allows people to make presentations more interesting and therefore, more memorable. The user interface is quite easy to figure out. Although there are not as many options using Prezi as there would be using other software, it is still possible to unique presentations.

This application is quite fun to use. Since the presentations can always be viewed on a browser, there is no need to worry about whether or not other people's software is compatible with it or not. It also has gives a unique feel to the presentation that other applications do not.

Other websites also help users create presentations such as Google Docs, PreZenit, and Slideshare. However, they do not have the same feeling as Prezi and the interface is easier to figure out.
To use it, you need to sign in or create an accounting. Your user name is the same as your email address. Then there is a link labeled "New Prezi". You can click that to get started. You are prompted to create a Title and Description. You can use a blank template or use one of the pre-made ones. Then you can click on the side to the number slide you want. In each section is a place to add text. Once you are done, you can preview it by clicking on the "Show" button in the bottom right corner. Prezi automatically saves for you. Once you are done you can share your work by clicking on the "Edit Together" button and sharing the URL with whoever you wish.
