Is there a way to insert a table?

Answer: 
You will be happy to know that you have a few different options when it comes to inserting a table into your MimioStudio Notebook lesson. I’m not sure which application the table you are trying to insert is formatted in but you can try to copy and paste it in by right clicking on the table, select COPY and then once you are in MimioStudio Notebook simply right click again and select PASTE. You could also do this by using the menu options at the top of MimioStudio Notebook. If the copy/paste option doesn’t work you can always use the screen clipping tool (which is on your toolbar) to clip the chart and add it to your lesson. In this case it would be easy for the students to use various tools to annotate the table. Another option is to simply keep the table in its native application and use Screen Annotation which would freeze the screen and allow for you or your students to annotate the table. When using this method a copy of your annotations is automatically saved in your Gallery for future reference.

Does Mimio have any function to make video recordings?
Answer: 
Are you wondering how you can make a recording to add to your MimioStudio Notebook lesson? I would recommend using our wonderful Mimio Recorder which you can find under the APPLICATIONS button on your toolbar. As long as you have some sort of microphone you can record all actions taking place on your computer as well as the audio coming into your computer.

QuickVote Add on in Powerpoint

Cameron.Nichols's picture

How can you use MimioVote Questions with existing PowerPoint lessons?

Answer: 

What a great question! You can use the MimioStudio Vote Add-in function to create any type of MimioVote activity in Microsoft PowerPoint. MimioVote activities are created by adding question slides to a PowerPoint presentation. A Vote Add-in feature includes a variety of pre-formatted question slide templates to make creating activities in PowerPoint quick and easy. The Vote Add-in feature should have been added to PowerPoint when you installed the MimioStudio software. If you go into PowerPoint you should see an add-in button in the menu on the right. If you click this you should see vote objects over on the left that will allow you to enter vote questions into PowerPoint. You can’t open vote files in PowerPoint but you should be able to create vote questions based in here.

Cameron.Nichols's picture

The light on my MimioTeach is an amber color and I can't get it to calibrate at all. Any suggestions?

Answer: 
Looks like you need some help with pairing your MimioHub with your MimioTeach. Here are the steps you will need to follow in order to sync these two units (Make sure your MimioHub is connected to your computer)


1. Open Mimio Settings in the software. Go to Classroom Devices.


2. You will see the MimioHub listed. (if it’s not there, the MimioHub is not in a USB port)


3. Hold down the status light (button) for about 5-7 seconds. It will start flashing amber and you will see MimioTeach appear on your list of Classroom Devices. It will say “available.”


4.Select the device and click Connect.


5.The Status light on the MimioTeach will turn solid green.
