BETA: “Office Mix” – Turn PowerPoints into Interactive Training

<As taken from https://officemix.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/topics/53237-what-is-office-mix>

The short answer? It makes your life a lot easier.
The “I-need-a-little-more-detail” answer? MIX allows you to turn your PowerPoints into interactive online lessons or presentations. We install an add-in that gives you the ability to record audio, video, and handwriting, and insert interactive elements like quizzes and CK12 exercises. There’s even a screen capture tool so you can record anything on your PC.
Once your presentation is ready just click “Create MIX.” We work our magic to mix in xml for an interactive document complete with analytics, and place it in the cloud. From there, just share the link, and your students can watch it on just about any device with a web browser. You can then check student progress online and see who watched the presentation, and how they did on your quizzes.

How much does MIX cost?
Are you ready for this? It’s free! The website, data analytics, and add-in are all free. MIX does, however, require Office 2013. You can try Office for free if you don’t have the latest version.

NOTE: Registration requires an invitation.  If you do not have one, you can request an invitation at http://aka.ms/mixconnect.
