How To Download a Prezi.

A common question we seem to get is, how do you download a Prezi you have done so you can share/show it to the class?
The answer isn’t however straight forward. Yes you can download a Prezi, but is it the best option for sharing and presenting if you have a reliable Internet connection?  I believe not, being a web2.0 tool Prezi is best viewed on the Internet for many reasons, here are just a few:
  • Embedded YouTube  videos on your Prezi will only display when you are viewing your Prezi on the Internet. If you download your Prezi these videos will not be included in the package.
  • Downloading and sharing your Prezi is cumbersome and time consuming. As a rule the files to download for a Prezi are quite large which means downloading them can take quite a while. Alternatively sharing the link of your Prezi with fellow students and teachers via email is both quick and easy.
  • The commenting feature on Prezi great for getting students to peer assess each others work.Why not as a homework task get your students to share their Prezi’s and get other students to comment on them on what they have learnt from their friends presentations.
If you would still like to download your Prezi so that you can perhaps view it a time when you don’t have Internet connections here is how you do it.
