Common Problems in Systematic Review Searches: Right Side Truncation? NOT! (A PreziTube Test)

A couple days ago, I was offered a coupon / voucher to test PreziTube. PreziTube is a tool that automatically exports your Prezi presentation to a Youtube video format, both downloadable and with the option of automatically uploading to Youtube. For this test, the automatic upload option ended up in their Youtube account, not mine, and I am not sure if there is an option to work around that if you pay for the privilege.

Now, I’ve had issues for a LOOOONG time with the lack of accessibility in Prezi. This seemed like a tool that might help with some portion of that process, so I was interested. Definitely interested.

I went to Prezi to find whichever of my Prezi presentations is the most popular. Ah, yes, one on systematic review searching and truncation.

I put in the link and the voucher code and gave it a try.

Prezitube offers a variety of timing options, but the assumption is that each “slide” within the Prezi will receive the same length of time. Since this presentation was rather text heavy, and I wasn’t sure just how long these times, I went for the middle. The range offered is from 4 to 30, and for this video I chose 15.

I downloaded the video, wished I had an audio voiceover, but didn’t want to take the time, so I just grabbed some amusing-to-me public domain audio from the Internet Archive, and spliced that in with iMovie. I have access to other video editing tools, but I wanted to see what could be done with virtually no resources.

And the link to the audio track used.

Now, this took almost no time at all. It probably took me about a half hour to make the video. It took me about 2 hours to upload it to Youtube, because Youtube was being glitchy that day. Not great, but absolutely worth a half hour of my time.

Now, do I want to do this for more Prezis? The free version gives you tiny videos and you can’t download. For $6.99 you may download and get high resolution videos, with support if something goes wrong. Hmmm, maybe, maybe. Maybe next time, I’ll do the systematic review Prezi on phrase searching.

  1. Wow! I did not understand a word of that. I don’t even know enough to “like” it. But I’m sure impressed at your breadth of knowledge as shown by this and many other posts.
