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.

Adding Question Templates to your MimioStudio Notebook Lessons

Cameron.Nichols's picture

Is there a limit to how many questions you can ask on a MimioVote test?

Answer: 
What a great question! You will be happy to know that there is no limit to the number of questions you can ask on any given test using the MimioVote Assessment System so feel free to ask away. The only issue you may run into, and this of course depends on your computer, is adding too many questions may slow things down a little bit when using the file. Just remember as part of our MimioStudio Software, your Gallery comes with wonderful Question Templates that are designed to use with the MimioVote Assessment System. However, you can still use the Question Template if you do not have the MimioVote. To do this, open your Gallery, go to and expand the Questions and Results folder, open up the Questions folder. Now choose the template you’d like, drag it out into MimioNotebook, resize as needed and add in your question and answer choices and you are ready to go! Left clicking once inside the template will open up the text fields where you can enter the question and answer choices. Click on the circle to the left of the correct answer choice and you will see a green check appear. You can change other settings by clicking on the icon in the lower right hand corner of the template. Once you finish, click outside of the template and it is ready to use. To reveal the correct answer simply click on the blue button at the bottom center of the Question Template. Please watch THIS wonderful video tutorial showing you how easy it is to add question templates to your lesson!
