Prezi offers free video presentation software for teachers to support remote learning

To assist with keeping the human connection, Prezi, a global leader in visual communications tools, has today announced it is providing both teachers and students free access to Prezi Video during the global pandemic. 
 
Prezi has multiple tools which can drastically enhance remote learning by helping teachers keep student engagement levels up, including Prezi Video. Prezi Video puts a presenter’s content on the screen alongside them, similar to a typical news broadcast. This enables teachers to maintain eye contact and use facial cues while pointing to specific content for emphasis — all vital for maintaining student engagement and increasing the human connection.
 
While traditionally the free Prezi offering is only available if presentations and video are publicly available to view, due to the sensitive nature of the content teachers need to deliver to students, they can now enjoy full privacy for all the content they create.

In addition, Prezi has released a number of materials to aid teachers and students in its use, including:
   
Spencer Waldron, Director of Global Communications, Prezi, commented: "While there is no replacing a great teacher in a classroom of their design, we feel it's important for us to give teachers the best tools we can offer, make it available for free, so they can teach in a digital classroom that is as close to the real thing as possible. We know this road might be a long one, and so we’ll remain as helpful as we can to teachers and students as they begin to return to the classroom too.”
