Citing a Prezi would be the same as citing a presentation using PowerPoint or any other software.


PowerPoint with the author's name

The in-text citation in APA, generally, uses the author name and publication year wrapped in parentheses:

Slide 19 of the presentation stated that "7 in 10 undergraduates skipped buying one or more texts due to costs" (Allen, 2013).

and the reference would be:

Allen, N. OER and solving the textbook cost crisis [PDF document]. Retrieved from SlideShare site:      https://www.slideshare.net/txtbks/textbooks-28013186

When citing online lecture notes, be sure to provide the file format in brackets after the lecture title (e.g. PowerPoint slides, Word document).

 

PowerPoint without the author's name

If the following example did not have an author's name attached to it then the in-text citation would use the title of the presentation instead:

Slide 19 of the presentation stated that "7 in 10 undergraduates skipped buying one or more texts due to costs" (OER and solving the textbook cost crisis, 2013).

and the reference would be:

OER and solving the textbook cost crisis [PDF document]. Retrieved from SlideShare site:      https://www.slideshare.net/txtbks/textbooks-28013186
