Office Mix allows educators to create a lesson by adding a handful of interactive elements to a PowerPoint presentation and publishing it to the secure Microsoft cloud. Educators can create interactive lessons that can be watched one time or as many times as a student needs to review the content. The video can be watched, sped up or slowed down, from the beginning or from any slide. Videos can contain quizzes that check student comprehension, audio and video using a webcam and built-in microphone or any other audio-visual peripherals attached to a PC running PowerPoint 2013 or higher. Educators can show ink being drawn on key parts of the slide to focus the students' attention and include screen recordings of other applications running on Windows.
