Biblical narrative: trying out Prezi
Prezi seemed a brilliant real alternative to Powerpoint. By real alternative I mean, not software from an alternative supplier that does much the same as Powerpoint but perhaps with more subtle transitions and animations, but software that reenvisages a presentation as something more than a collection of slides.
Prezi lets me create something like a mindmap, and then share it with others, or use it to illustrate my talk. Click on the image below to explore my Prezi on biblical narrative it's my first try, it has no pictures, but already I can see this is a new and often better way to present ideas than the old slideshow was. An audience can zoom in and out (just click on something to zoom in there, click on the magnifying glass icon to zoom in, or the full screen icon to see the whole "page") or step forward or back through the presentation with the arrows.
asks (in the comments below) for a standalone file to run the presentation on a PC (without the need for an Internet connection) here it is.
It is nearly a 10MB download as it includes the files for Prezi as well as the data for the presentation. Apparently it works on Windows and Mac (but not yet on Linux) so pretty portable!
