Prezi Meetings - Collaboration
Prezi has come out with something new; Prezi Meetings (Read review by Mashable) and get a tutorial from the Prezi Blog. Each person will be provided an icon on the presentation editor. As you edit, it updates real time. Think of it as TitanPad for creating a Prezi presentation. When you access Prezi you will notice a "Meeting" link in the menu in the top right hand corner. If you click on the "Invite to Edit" link, it will provide a link (that expires in one week) that you can send to people in an email for them to collaborate. You can have a maximum of 10 people collaborating on a presentation. If you click on the "Start Online Presentation" you can invite people to remotely view the presentation...LIVE. This is a great addition to Prezi. See image below of menu.
When it comes to classroom use, if you have a person (or you) who is familiar with Prezi, you can invite people to edit a presentation with you and then you can work on learning the software together. You can do the same thing with students, especially if you have students who are experts and can help novices. The remote presentation allows you to show one presentation to multiple classrooms at the same time. Be a great way for teachers to collaborate with each other.
