New software version, Mimio Studio 7

Travis Rink's picture

In regard to this new release of Mimio Studio 7, is it going to be tremendously different than Mimio 6? I just spent the summer learning 6.


As the excitement builds for our new product release, MimioVote and MimioView, along with the redesigned MimioTeach and MimioCapture, we also have a software update, MimioStudio 7, that will be even more powerful. No worries however, you can expect familiar ground when you first see the new version available in late August/early September 2010. Although some aspects will have a new look to them, the overall methods and operation of the software are very similar if not the same in many cases. There are some exciting new additions such as infinite cloning, page transitions, and the ability to add actions to objects. The Gallery is much more user friendly also from the respect that you'll be able to move folders and files around in the Gallery much like you can in the Windows and Mac environment. Mimio Studio 7 seamlessly integrates with the new products coming out in September. MimioVote is our new handheld student response system. MimioView is the easy and powerful document/microscope camera. Both products will be operated through Mimio Studio 7 without the need of any other applications. More information about all of the new and improved products can be found at Complementing the new products and software, we are also launching redesigned and new QuickLearn training sessions in September that will cover all aspects of Mimio Studio 7 along with new products. There will be 14 free training sessions offered that will incorporate not only the new products and software, but continue to provide the excellent support and training of the existing products. There are many exciting things happening in our Mimio community which is proof that Mimio is truly responsive to the needs of all educators.

Animated GIFs in mimio

Travis Rink's picture

Is it possible to insert an animated .gif file into Mimio notebook? One of the teachers in our district has been trying to do this but the animation is not working.


This is a very common question that comes up when users are wanting to spice up their mimio files with great animations. Animated gifs that you might find on websites and such and want to incorporate into mimio studio files are treated as static graphics. This means that they lose their animation when brought into mimio and are simply just a graphic. Animated files that can be included are Flash files. Many websites use interactive Flash files and there are a variety of methods that will allow you to use Flash animations that are described in the Ask a Master section and the Forum area on mimioconnect that will hopefully suit your needs. Keep thinking of ways to increase the interactivity of your lessons!
