Using the MimioStudio Recorder

Cameron.Nichols's picture
Does Mimio have any function to make video recordings?
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.

MimioVote Self-Paced Tests and Images

Tracy Tishion's picture
Is there a way to incorporate pictures into a self-paced test? I have pictures that go with my MimioVote questions that don't show up when I would print the test.
Thank you for such a relevant question. The MimioVote's versatility allows a teacher to create assessments as either teacher-led or self-paced. The self-paced method to which you were asking about will just print the text of the questions and no images. This doesn't mean that you can't have both for your students to view when they take a printed test. Here is what I typically do if I'm giving a self-paced test with images. There are three methods I use depending upon the number of images I've incorporated into the questions:

1. This method is simply cutting and pasting the images onto the "printed-out" test if there are relatively few images.

2. If I have images with every question, I will print the notebook pages, as is, by going through File > print from the notebook. This way you have the option to choose the number of notebook pages to display per printed page. Once again, the number you choose for a single page, depends on how "wordy" you were when you made up the questions. The text and image size decreases if you print multiple notebook pages on one sheet of paper.

3. This last option you have is to save the test as a PDF file and then print that out which will have each question with images on full sheets of paper. Since this option will print 1 notebook page per sheet of paper, you could potentially have a large number of pages due to how many questions you had.

I hope one of these methods will work for you. If you get the chance check out the many other tips and suggestions highlighted on Ask a Master!

Custom Font Sizes

Tracy Tishion's picture

I would like to use a font size larger than size 72. Is it possible to use a font size that is not displayed in the text editor box list?


Absolutely! That's a good question and one that has a fairly easy solution. Follow these steps below:
1. Open a notebook page.
2. Open the text editor from the applications toolbar like you're going to type text on the page.
3. Click on Format then Font from the top menu bar of the notebook page.
4. Once the Font box opens, click inside the "size box" and type in the desired font size number and click OK.
5. Start typing in the text editor box and it should reflect the size you chose in step #4. It will remain this new size until you chose another size from the text editor or the method explained above.
Happy creating!

QuickVote Add on in Powerpoint

Cameron.Nichols's picture

How can you use MimioVote Questions with existing PowerPoint lessons?


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.

Pairing the MimioTeach and MimioHub

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?

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.
