imageReaders of this blog will know what a fan I am of PowerPoint – You may have read my Power-Up series . But, with all the talk of Devices , Apps, Services and Computing. We have not forgotten one of the greatest and most versatile applications ever created.

Now you can make PowerPoint presentations into a truly interactive online learning experience. We are calling this a MIX. (yep , we are down with the Kids at Microsoft)

Everything you need to create and share your mix is included in the FREE add-in for PowerPoint 2013. Add audio and video of yourself giving your presentation, write on slides as you talk to them, insert quizzes, practice exercises, and more – all from within PowerPoint.

Think screencast, but better. All you need is Office 2013 and the free Office Mix add-in.
