  2. 2. DEVELOPMENT TOOL PREZI • Prezi is a website where users can create and design presentations.

Pro’s: • Free • Not full of linear slides like PowerPoint, but instead the user can add different movements in order to make the presentation come alive. • The three movements, or transitions, are proximity, rotation, and scale/zoom. Using these transitions make a Prezi come to life. • Able to import PowerPoints Con’s: • Must create a user account to even look at the tools to create a project which can be annoying for those who just wan to create a project without having to log in every time. • Requires internet access in order to create projects, which can become a hassle when internet is unavailable and a project needs to get done.
  3. 3. DEVELOPMENT TOOL WEEBLY • Weebly is a very easy to use and affordable tool for creating websites.

(Weebly Features) • Web-based; PC and Mac friendly.

Con’s: • Not for the advanced video editor; limited options compared to professional video editing software. • Projects have to be saved frequently due to occasional crashing. • Many versions of the product make it frustrating looking at tutorials. • Not compatible with Mac.
  5. 5. COLLABORATION TOOL GOOGLE+ • Google+ is a social network, much like Facebook. It gives users a way to connect with family and friends who also have an account with the site. Pro’s: • “Circles” can be created, letting users separate their friends or people they know into different categories. • Features including IM and video chat, allowing more ways to communicate with other people. Con’s: • Having to create an account. It is not a major issue, but it can seem inconvenient when just trying to catch up with someone. • Certain privacy settings can make all information on a user’s profile public, which means any information that a user may not want others to know could be publically accessed.
