New Release Features: Educational License, Reuse, Learn Center

Besides the new editor, we introduce three additional features today:

  1. Educational license: long-awaited feature requested by students and educators.

  2. Prezi Reuse: share a copy of your prezis with others to use as a template.

  3. New learn center: multimedia lessons and a community space to share your thoughts.


See how these shiny new things work after the jump!


Educational License


In response to a growing demand, (read the open letter to the Prezi CEO, demanding a school license) we developed an educational license pack. Students and teachers can now create private prezis for free. They can have Prezi Desktop at a special price. Upon verification of student/teacher identity, Prezi EDUEnjoy is free and Prezi EDUPro comes with a special educational discount.

edulicenses_blogpostIf you are a teacher/student and already use Prezi:

Have a Public account? - upgrade to EDUEnjoy for free.

Have an Enjoy account? - upgrade to EDUPro for free! (Enjoy and EDUPro have the same price: $59. As an Enjoy user, you need to provide your credit card data to buy EDUPro, since it's a different product. You can start using it straight away without being charged. In accordance with our recurring payment system, you will be charged $59 when your current license expires).

Have a Pro account? - You can switch to EDUPro once your current license expires. Cancel your subscription by hitting the "Cancel" button on your settings page. You can use your current account during the remaining time of the year. Once it expires, go and sign up for EDUPro!

Prezi Reuse


This new feature allows you to offer a copy of your prezis to everyone for content remixing. If you have a Public license, the reuse option is checked by default when you create a new prezi. Of course, you can uncheck it with a click to keep your content from being accessible by others. If you have an Enjoy or Pro license, you can share your published prezis for reuse by marking the dedicated checkbox. You can find prezis offered for remix in the reuse library.

Save a copy of interesting prezis, and use them as templates for your own work!



Why will you like this?

  1. It's easier to get inspired as you play around with an existing prezi, replacing texts and images as you build your version.

  2. Build a prezi just 10 minutes before a meeting: search for a prezi in the Reuse Library, save a copy to your own account, and replace the content.

  3. Don't end the loop: offer your version for further reuse! The result will be a growing database of diverse open knowledge.


New Learn Center


Prezi Learn Center - Become a Pro!When building our new learn center, we had three goals in mind:

  1. Collect all written and multimedia information on one page.

  2. Offer step-by-step, detailed lessons for authors on different experience levels about how to use Prezi. Video and prezi introductions, guides, walkthroughs, and how-tos now live in the Prezi Academy.

  3. You provide great feedback on our community forums, and we are happy to take this to the next level. Live From Prezi Universe is a new, dynamic section to share tips and tricks, read inspirational Prezi experiences, and get advice from professionals.

You can also check the updated Manual for further guidance. If you can't find an answer to your questions anywhere in the Learn Center, visit our community forums for personal support!

Excellent news - and thank you for both listening to your end-users and responding with a sensible pricing structure for educational establishments. I couldn't ask for more :-)

Thank you for taking requests from teachers and creating the educational option for students. I think Prezi has some really great possibilities for young writers, as much as presenters, and I hope teachers can integrate it into their schools.

When I mentioned the old price structure during curriculum meetings with my faculty colleagues, discussions came to a halt. No amount of cajoling on my part got us past the cost. I can now renew those talks. I want to add my "thanks" to those already on this page (and to the other "thanks" from educators that will surely follow as the news spreads). I'm also impressed with the thoughtful changes in the new Prezi editor. If I didn't have so much other work to do today I could give the editor a whirl; that will have to wait.

I am a mathematics teacher and have enjoyed using Prezi in situations where I do not need to enter mathematical formulae into my presentation. As a maths teacher this is however a fairly big draw back about using Prezi, if I can't enter mathematical expressions and equations easily - like using MathType for instance - then as a presentation tool it's not really so useful. So, is there a plan to make it possible to enter mathematical expressions using Prezi in the near future - please?

Are there special directions for upgrading and existing users account for Edu Licensing? Your form for upgrading errors with "that username already in use." :-)

Thanks!

Good news. How wiil be the verification of student/teacher identity

Thanks

Another BIG thank you from another educator. I use it everyday in my high school English classes!

Another BIG thank you Prezi from another educator. I use Prezi everyday in my high school English classes and it has helped me to integrate technology seamlessly into my classroom.

Prezi has also caught on with my students. A student of mine used Prezi for the first time in a French class presentation and shared with me afterwards that other students were "wow'd" by his "Prezintation", even the French teacher had a smile on her face! Another student used Prezi for the first time and excitedly came to find me after school to tell me all about it!

January 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCharles Chan

Verification is upon email addresses. You need to have an educational/school email address to verify your identity.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

Thanks for the feedback!

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

Hi John,

This happened because you attempted to register again. You don't need to register again for an EDU license, just upgrade your existing account.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

Hi Callum,

As we have said before we are aware of the request for LaTex or other mathemathical language support development in Prezi. Right now I cannot promise anything to you about this though. Please keep in touch, we always listen to our author's voices when we develop new features.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

How can I get prezi for my school presentations?

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLora Davis

Hi Lora,

Please just upgrade your existing prezi account to EDU. Here can you find the new licenses: http://prezi.com/profile/signup/edu/
If you don't have a Prezi account yet, please register to one of our educational licenses on the above link.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

Wicked AWESOME!! Thank you for making it free for teachers and students. And now that the interface has become more user-friendly, NO MORE BORING DULL SLIDESHOWS! All my students will be required to use PREZI! THANKS!

It's so beyond cool - It's ICED!

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

While I had heard of Prezi, I haven't tried it. There seems to be enough buzz around this, that I will give it a try and decide if we'll extend this knowledge throughout our district to our teachers.

Thank you for this opportunity.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDan Gross

Will librarians be eligible for the educational discount, too? I am a public librarian, but I'm working on a presentation that will be given for both public and school librarians. I also have a need to do educational programs for patrons.

Thanks.

[...] great news this week is that Prezi has released educational accounts. Previously all prezis had to be public. Now schools have the chance for students to use Prezi, [...]

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPrezi | Bright ideas

I get the following message while attempting to upgrade my Prezi account to EDU on http://prezi.com/profile/signup/edu/, "This license is valid only for active students and teachers." Is there any verification method available?

Thanks.
Great job with the new updates, by the way.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKuah Yan Guang

I have changed to my school email address. Are the EDU accounts available for students outside of US?

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKuah Yan Guang

Hi, if you have an educational email address that matches the domain of your school's home page, we can set it, even if it's not an .edu address given that it's not from the US. This case please send me an email to zoltan.radnai_at_prezi.com

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

If you have an educational email address verified by the school domain that provided it for you, you can.

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZoli Radnai

I already have a public account but wanted to upgrade to Enjoy. When I attempted to complete the form, it would not take my college email address saying it was already in use.

How can I upgrade to enjoy alternately?

Thank you. Prezi is a blast to use. Much better than the trad. presentation approaches.

I would like to switch to the free educational account. I work in the seminary at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK.

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarlene

I'm having difficult because my email is .net and my school's address is .org. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks and what a fabulous product!
