How I Use It
Anytime I have a lecture, I use a Prezi as a skeleton. Basically, I now use Prezi instead of PPT.
My Take
Prezi is an improved version of PowerPoint. The user is allowed to create links and insert videos directly into the presentation. No more linking to Youtube and waiting for the video to play (or not to play). User can increase the size and shape of objects for a better visual display than PPT, but it takes a while to figure out what is the best format for each presentation. That said, I like it, and it really makes you think about how your concepts will best be shown visually, which is great for all your visual learners.
