For the past two weeks, I have been working on a narrated Prezi presentation on the Modality Principle. Essentially, the Modality Principle determines when narration versus on-screen text would be the best mode of content delivery for graphic-based presentations. I explain more about the Modality Principle in the link above.
The Prezi was very easy to create. I selected a template from the variety of templates available. I chose a balance as the Modality Principle is all about balancing the learners’ cognitive load. I then chose a color scheme that had good contrast.
The interesting thing about Prezi is that the presentations as path-based, meaning that there is a larger graphic and the presentation then zooms in on smaller sections of the graphic. This visual helps learners understand that the small sections of content are a part of something much larger. I really like the analogy presented in this manner.
I did not experience any problems while creating my Prezi or voice overs. It was very easy to add narration to the pathways. I only wish that there was a setting to zoom in more on the graphic, such as a “grow” effect. However, this is just a personal preference.
In summary, creating a narrated presentation with Prezi is a breeze. If you have any feedback on the presentation, I’d love to hear it.
