- Overlap elements when you give a prezi
- Don’t spin too much – don’t make your audience sea sick.
- No way to embed a prezi within another prezi.
- They have a good “learn” system and tips.
- Prezi meeting can hold up to 10 people who can work on the same presentation.
- For a good prezi, one should think in frames with multiple objects, not linear slides.
- Instead of having to go forwards or go backwards to a specific slide, you just pull back, and then you can go wherever you want.
- Think of prezi more like a concept map or a mind map – not just linear thinking.
- Make the details small.
- It has circle, square, and rectangle frames. Frames within frames, use as many frames as you need.
- Take a look at some of her examples. Here is a group made one.
- Make your CV as a prezi. Huh, that sounds like a good idea
- Easier to get small than to get bigger. Start big, then scale down when you need to.
- Use PDFs.
- Use higher image quality in the upload. Zooming in will be granulated otherwise.
- OverLAP, Shift DRAG, SURPRISE your audience.
- It doesn't seem like prezis can be embedded into a blog, though.

Thanks for the post and tips. I'm a recent MLIS graduate who had a classmate use Prezi to give presentations in class, but these points make it easier to think about how to use it to give a good presentation.
Prezis can be embedded into a blog, providing your blogging platform lets you. I've got one embedded into a blog post here: http://www.andrewcolgoni.ca/2011/03/teaching-how-to-read-a-scientific-journal-article/
(the prezi itself isn't very good, but it does embed!)
