Microsoft Announces New Office Mix Gallery And New Content Partners

office-mix-galleryMicrosoft last month launched the public preview of Office Mix, a new tool that will allow users to create interactive online lessons using PowerPoint. You can add whatever content you want into the Mix. 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.

Based on the user feedback, Microsoft has created a public Gallery designed for sharing and discovering great lessons. Through the new public Gallery, you can upload your favorite mixes, make them available to others, and browse content created by others to spark ideas or share with your class. Also to make sharing easier, you can now embed Office Mix content, so it can show up on virtually any website.

Microsoft is also adding more content partners to Office Mix,

The list of content partners continues to grow (in addition to the partners we announced in May: Khan Academy and the CK-12 Foundation). University of Colorado’s PhET physical science simulations app is now available through Office Mix. An Office Mix math app from GeoGebra is expected to be available later this month. Check out www.geogebratube.org for advanced viewing of thousands of STEM education materials that will be freely available through GeoGebra in Office Mix.

    I saw Gallery and immediately hoped they’d done something about that horrible Photo Gallery program which hasn’t been updated in what seems like forever. It crashes every time I launch it… had to install Picasa to for a decent experience.
