Prezi is a step beyond PowerPoint, in that it allows users to create maps that can showcase relationships between ideas. Prezi allows users to input bullets, text, YouTube videos, .jpeg images, Google images, and other organizational elements. Users can also link items together to create a string of slides. Go to Prezi and create a new account using your e-mail address (the free Public account will suffice). Once you have logged into Prezi, create a new Prezi. Before getting started, it is strongly recommended that you view a Prezi tutorial. Several tutorials are available at Learn | Prezi. For this project, you will create two separate components that mirror each other. The first component will be an outline in the form of a Word document, and the second one will be your Prezi. Each week, you will add content (text and pictures) to the Prezi. Other content (such as YouTube videos) is allowed, but not required. In order to utilize the images feature of Prezi, use either photos you own the rights to, stock images from Microsoft or Creative Commons, or properly licensed images from websites such as flickr. For all images used in the Prezi, put a small text box near the image that shows who the photo belongs to or where it was found. APA format does not apply to these text boxes. Putting a URL as to where the image was found in the textbox would count as giving credit. When creating the Prezi, link things as you go, since they can sometimes become lost on the map. Use headers to help audience members follow the flow of your Prezi. Type (1) your name, (2) the title of your project, (3) the date, (4) Ashford University, and (5) the course name at the beginning of the Prezi. Put an in-text citation in the Prezi every time you input a sufficient amount of text. Include a clear thesis statement that evolves every week and includes all of the elements of your Prezi, as well as a “References”� slide at the end of the Prezi.
