With the introduction of Morph in PowerPoint 2016, the market is naturally comparing Prezi to Morph. How are they different? How are they the same? PowerPoint is driven by slides while Prezi is often seen as a blank canvas where you can push the envelope. But the new Morph feature has a lot of power and options. You can use transitions, animations to objects move across the screen. And you can apply this to key tools in PowerPoint such as SmartArt, WordArt and Charts. The learning curve for adding Morph to your PowerPoint skills is easy to pick up. I was able to use Morph to animate words for a client presentation and it added an interactivity to an otherwise flat presentation. I see PowerPoint 2016 (available only in Office 365) and its new Morph feature as a good alternative to Prezi. What do you think? Email me and share your thoughts.
This month’s reader feature takes us over the pond to the UK and the team at POPcomms, a presentation design studio that focuses on bringing their designs alive on the screen. They are a fun group who often get their best creative going over a pool table and the local pub. Their portfolio is full of great client examples such as Citrix, Fujitsu and Isotrak. In our interview, Managing Director Damjan Haylor and I chatted about the market, trends and what they see as the next best thing.
In addition to our upcoming webinars, Adobe's Senior eLearning Evangelist Dr . Pooja Jaisingh will be hosting a May 10th webinar, More Power To Your PowerPoint Slides. Go Interactive! Join us to learn about the tips and tricks you need to know to convert your existing PowerPoint presentations to interactive and engaging eLearning course.
