Using Office Mix for Recorded Presentations

Recently, I worked with Extension family science specialist Kim Bushaw on a series of presentations on Teaching Adult Learners. The goal was to produce some pre-recorded presentations that Extension professionals view on demand.

There's a number of tools available to reach that goal, including Tegrity, Skype for Business, or simply adding audio to PowerPoint, but we decided to try Office Mix, a relatively new, free plug-in for PowerPoint.

Office Mix helps you create and share interactive videos from within PowerPoint. Although Kim and I did not take advantage of all the capabilities of Office Mix, it did allow us to add video of Kim and digital ink on top of her presentation slides. Kim also found it easy to work with and was able to produce the presentations herself.

Here's one of the videos from the "Teaching Adult Learners" series.

Completed Office Mix presentations can be uploaded to Microsoft's Office Mix site, which supports the polls and interactive apps available in Mix. We exported the "Teaching Adult Learners" presentations to video and posted them to YouTube.

Let me know if you have questions about how Kim and I used Office Mix. I hope you'll give it a try.
