#Office365Challenge – Now that I’ve shared the basics around Office Mix with you, it’s time to look at the overall slide recordings you can do. “Record audio and video of yourself giving your presentation. Write on your slides just like you would on a whiteboard.”

Tools: Microsoft PowerPoint with Office Mix
Description: Slide Recordings in Office Mix

In the previous posts we looked at Screen Recordings (used for demos and training) and the quizzes you can insert on your PowerPoint presentation. Now let’s have a look at bringing that all together.

Click on the Mix Tab (1), then on Slide Recording (2).

In the Slide Recording screen you will have options to do the following:
1. Press Record to start
2. Stop the Recording
3. Go to the previous slide
4. Go to the previous animation
5. Go to the next animation
6. Go to the next slide
7. Preview your recording
8. Edit the Recording
9. Make notes
10.Change the screen to full page view
11.Toggle between Thumbnail and full screen and choose the camera
12.Change the microphone volume
13.Choose your inking style

Based on your settings, it will record the video of you, your voice (audio), any inking and clicks you do on the screen. Once done – press stop and then close the screen. The Inking and the video will now appear on the slide. You can make changes to your shapes, colours, text etc. without having to update your recording.

Videos can be uploaded to the Office Mix site for sharing, published to your 365 site or exported (saved) in a video format (1), take note of the different formats available when exporting as video (2):

I still have a LOT to learn about Office Mix, but I reckon this is a good start.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
