08 Apr Got Mix?
After many years of having nothing new to say about PowerPoint… I actually learned something new!
Microsoft recently released Office Mix, a FREE add-in that supercharges PowerPoint video. It enables you to combine video and PowerPoint slides to create interactive online videos.
Huh? What does that mean, exactly?
It’s much easier to understand Mix by seeing it in action:
Per Microsoft: Office Mix is a free add-in for PowerPoint 2013. It is a powerful tool that makes authoring and sharing of online lessons / presentations simple. It allows you to make them interactive with quizzes and labs. It allows you to export lessons as mp4 videos.
- Voice, Video & Digital Ink
- Polls & Interactive Apps
- Insight & Analytics
- Playback on Any Device
Office Mix will be especially helpful to trainers and educators, but I also anticipate many business applications ahead. (Perhaps now SlideShare will evolve into “MixShare.”)
I’m looking forward to seeing new mixes…especially my own.
