OfficeMix - for creating interactive online lessons
If you are interested in turning some of your PowerPoint slide decks into interactive lessons, then check out Office Mix! www.officemix.com
You have to download the "add on" for PowerPoint and then from within PowerPoint you can record your voice over your slides while you draw or annotate them. You can also insert self-check questions within content. Once you post it to the OfficeMix site, you can embed or link it into your class site (D2L, GoogleClassroom, website, wiki, etc.). Later you can go back and check the analytics to see how many students have finished and/or still need to work on it. You can also see which questions students struggle with most often to guide your work.
Unfortunately, the Office Mix 'add on' only works on PCs (including our Teacher Notebooks!) and not Mac's. So, teachers need to use their notebooks to create the OfficeMix. After that, students can access them from ANY device.
Note: If you have trouble adding a quiz into the Office Mix... check out this fix: http://j.mp/1pa5NnF
