Prezi is a really unique presentation tool.  Starting with one page, you can include multiple pieces of information.  When played, the presentation guides a viewer in a non-linear way to zoom in to new information contained on that page.  This would be a great different way to present information.

Watch the video below to see an introduction to using Prezi.
