Freebee Friday: Mix it Up

Screenshot (5)Microsoft’s latest add-on for Office 2013 is its Mix authoring tool. It’s a 3.5MB download that slips right into PowerPoint and leaves a new tab on the right side of the PowerPoint interface. Open it and you can add video and software screen captures to any existing or new presentation or mark-up areas and voice over some narration. It can have Khan Academy and CK12 content embedded in the show and more educational services partners are on the way.

When you’re done, the Mix lesson can be saved as an HD video or as an interactive PowerPoint sequence. The best part is that Mix is not only free but can turn any lesson into an interactive one.
