CPD23 Thing 17: The Medium is the Message- Prezi and Slideshare

I will admit to never having tried any of these Things before CPD23.  But that’s the point of the programme right?  Learn new skills and all that.  So take a deep breath and step away from Powerpoint…

So Prezi sounds good.  I like the idea of a bigger picture then zooming in to see more specifics rather than just flipping to the next slide.  I have duly watched Ned Potter’s amazing Ultimate Guide to Prezi and produced this!

Slideshare is indeed very handy for searching other people’s presentations and it’s brilliant when trainers provide the slides on there after a session too.  I’m not sure I’m ready to share my own slides with the world yet…  Perhaps after more practise with Prezi!  The idea of using it to promote yourself as an online CV is also interesting.  If I was jobseeking, this would definitely be a route I would try, with a link on my paper CV.  I don’t think it would ever replace a paper CV – at least not yet!
