Playing with Prezi
A while ago, I've came across Prezi presentation tool. It is completely different approach to presentation than slides with bullet-points. I didn't like the dependence on either the on-line access with Flash, or on the Windows executable (with embedded Flash, of course). Today, I did my first presentation using Prezi (together with Šimon).
We have been given 10 minutes to present our approach to two sub-tasks of the Plagiarism Detection task of PAN 2012. We used Prezi in order to be able to focus on explaining our approach without devoting too much time to explaining the structure of the talk to the audience. I think this is a great strength of Prezi, if used correctly.
So, my dear readers, do you think Prezi can be a useful tool, or do you instead agree with Peter (in Slovak), that it is just an over-glorified eye-candy? You can see our presentation here. Thanks to Yuri for the photo!
