Prezi

Prezi is an entirely Flash-based app that lets you break away from the slide-by-slide approach of most presentations. Instead, it allows you to create non-linear presentations where you can zoom in and out of a visual map containing words, links, images, videos, etc.

Students and faculty can sign up for a free Prezi account by going to http://prezi.com/profile/signup/edu/ that provides 500Mb storage space on their server. The application is browser based so it will work with either a PC or Mac. Faculty can choose whether the prezi presentation is private, published, or shared with selected individuals.
