OS: Windows and Mac
Office Mix is an add-in for PowerPoint that provides extra tools that enhance how you deliver and share your presentation. In other words, Office Mix lets you be there even when you are not physically delivering your presentation. Mix enables you to record your delivery to perfection, and it saves all the interactivity. The end results closely mimic self-delivered content.
Within Office Mix (or Mix), you can add interactive quizzes and polls. You can also insert audio clips, videos, screen captures, and screen
shots. Then you can use your your annotations, time them, and record as a video, and share with the world.
Note that Mix output doesn’t need PowerPoint for playback. Such content can be published online to Office 365 or exported to a video. You can see some samples of Mix content and also download some videos on the Office Mix site.
Some Mix content is very well designed and delivered, such as this sample Mix of Bill Gates’ talk, Are poor countries doomed to stay poor?
