Teacher Review for Prezi Classic

Cumbersome and problematic. Takes too long to create a presentation and adding pictures is troublesome. (No drag and drop with this one). Students complain when some tried to use it on a project and it was uncooperative. I do not recommend.

How I Use It
Was considering using it on a daily basis or for projects in the future. After watching some students use it in their previous project by choice and have a lot of trouble with it I am not sure if it is a good program for them to use for projects. I also created one myself to try and figure out how it worked and having to refer numerous times to the help section and getting annoyed with it I do not think I will be using it in the future. I do like the non linear presentation style and so did some of the students.
My Take
The idea is great. The movement from one topic to the next is a really neat idea and exit from the linear form of presenting. However building materials in it takes nearly twice as long as building presentations in Keynote or Power Point. Adding pictures is cumbersome as is adding in slides. I like the idea but the process is overly complicated and time consuming. It is also not compatible with google classroom and will leave students frustrated when they cant submit something.
