You may have heard of Prezi as an innovative software similar to the old PowerPoint. The difference was that you could present the information in a more dynamic way.
Prezi has expanded in the last year, with an emphasis on incorporating both live videos and those recorded in presentations. Now, as many schools try to implement online education for the first time, Prezi is launching two new tools for distance learning.
What do the new Prezi functions entail?
The first feature released is a “video to video” feature, which will allow presenters to place videos recorded on the screen during live or recorded streaming. The tool could serve as a visual aid for teachers instead of physical whiteboards and diagrams.
The second tool is called Screenshare, and those who use the platform can use it to switch between videos (live or recorded) and their desktop, according to The Verge.
The two functions are part of a broader effort to reorient Prezi around distance meetings, a goal that has been in the works in recent years.
“We started, in 2017, to see the world change from the moment when the presentations, which mainly related to the stage, started to become more and more recorded,” explains Szafranski.
The company launched Prezi Video, its first platform that allowed presenters to be displayed on the screen along with their visual content at the end of last year.
Since then, the company has been integrating Prezi Video with video chat platforms: it can be integrated into Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts and Webex, some of the most popular remote dating tools.
The “Video to Video” playback tool is currently in beta for Prezi Video users. The final versions of it and the Screenshare will be available by the end of the fourth quarter of this year.
