    Slide 2 - Product Description

    • Office Mix is a new, free solution for PowerPoint 2013 that makes it easy to create and share online interactive presentations, or “mixes”. Mixes play like web videos, but with support for animations, live links, and more. You create them in PowerPoint, but watch them online at OfficeMix.com.
    • Office Mix lets you record yourself giving your lecture while you write and draw on you slides. You can insert quizzes, curated videos, labs, or secure web content, add screen capture, and export the entire lecture to video. You can embed the lectures in web pages, or share the links with your students, who can watch them online or on any device.
