I’ve been looking into some presentations options that go beyond the (sometimes bland) land of Powerpoints. One that I really like the look and feel of is Prezi.

In addition, they also offer free live webinars to help you create and share your first prezi–so lots of support options to get started.
You can make your Prezi portable by downloading a version of it, which you can view offline or present in a setting where you don’t have internet. When presenting your Prezi, you can control the speed by setting the time interval between path steps.
