How to Create an Office Mix Presentation in PowerPoint

Office Mix

Office Mix is an add-in for PowerPoint that allows you to add audio, video and digital mark-up to traditional PowerPoint slides.  Once published to the cloud using your Office 365 account, you can submit sophisticated presentations for media assignments.

Before obtaining the Office Mix add-in, you must meet the minimum system requirements.  A relatively simple way for UF students to do this is by participating in the Office 365 ProPlus agreement.  As indicated on the UF Information Technology Website:

UFIT is pleased to provide access to free copies of Office 365 ProPlus to UF students, faculty, and staff. As part of UF’s campus-wide licensing agreement, the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Education program allows multiple full downloads to personal devices of Office 2013 Professional Plus, Office 2016 for Mac, and Office for iPad at no charge.

For more information on who is eligible and how to download the software, in order to take advantage of the Office Mix Add-in, carefully review the Office 365 ProPlus:  Free Downloads page at UF Information Technology.
