About This Class

Office Mix is a free add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint, which enables teachers to create interactive lessons and presentations, and then share them online with students.

In the first lesson, I am going begin by guiding learners through the process of downloading and installing Office Mix, as well as discussing the Mix interface and recording options.

The next two lessons will focus on adding interactivity to your office mix presentations, and ill cover adding audio and video clips, using the screen clipping and screen recording features of Mix, as well as adding interactive elements such as a multiple choice quiz, online poll and embedded webpage.

Next, ill show learners how to add audio and video narration when recording their mix presentations, and use the built in inking tools to annotate on a slide.

I will then move on to publishing your office mix creations, and ill show learners the various publishing options including publishing to video, office365 and the mix website.

In the penultimate lesson, ill discuss sharing your office mixes, both with your audience and students, and also via social media channels such as Facebook and twitter.

The final lesson of the class will be the examples lesson, where I’m going to use some of the skills and techniques that have been taught in the office mix class, to create a fully interactive and engaging online lesson.

I have worked in eLearning for over 8 years, and in IT and computing for over 15 years.

I began my career at the Workers Education Association, the largest provider of Adult education in the UK, as a support analyst before moving up to a Senior Support Analyst, involved in building networks and providing helpdesk support.  I then moved on to work as a Learning Technologies officer for Coventry University London Campus, and then a Virtual Learning Environment Manager during my 4 years at the Royal Veterinary College.

Presently, I am the Electronic Resources Manager at the Institute of Dentistry at Queen Mary University in London, England.

I have managed multiple eLearning projects throughout my wide and varied career, including a college wide migration from Blackboard to Moodle, creating new undergraduate online courses, managing Virtual Learning Environments, Creating e-learning content, Moodle training, learning design including MOOCs and SPOCs and pedagogical design of online courses.

I frequently identifies and assesses relevant learning technologies to extend and support teaching and learning, and plan and manage the integration of such technologies into the curriculum and into teaching practice. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching Football - I am a Chelsea fan, entering online competitions, playing with my cat Daisy (she makes a guest appearance in my courses!) and going out to the pub with my friends.
