1. To create a Prezi, click on the "New Presentation" button on your homepage.
Or, if you would like to work on an existing Prezi, hover over it and select the pencil icon on the left side of the presentation thumbnail.
2. After you select "new presentation", you must pick a template. You can sort them by color or purpose. If you want a blank workspace, you can just select a template and then delete elements and the background after it's open.
The Settings Bar is where you can (from left to right): save your Prezi, insert, show the background and animations, start your presentation, get help, add collaborators, share, and see what collaborators are online.
When creating your Prezi, you will use the Insert button to insert: arrows, images, symbols & shapes, YouTube videos, background music, and files (pdf or video). You will use the View button to customize/edit the current theme.
