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.

Click HERE to watch a great video showing you how to use the recorder!

QuickVote Add on in Powerpoint

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.

How I Love Mimio...or Excuse Me While I Wax Poet-tech

mkalowe's picture

How much do you love using Mimio in your classroom?


Valentine's Day is upon us, and I have a new love - to be honest.
After decades of teaching, of striving, of reaching
young minds in the halls of my school -
I find myself having a blast in my class with a tool that is totally cool!

It's white and it's sleek - completely unique
in the way it can get students learning.
And the Pad is so rad that my students are sad when the
clock shows that class time is burning.

They come to my board with nary a cord,
and move things around with a stylus.
They're having such fun, they don't even run
when the bell rings -
They almost seem tireless!

When it comes to a test, my class does it best
When using the MimioVote.
The colors are pleasing, anxiety-easing,
and quickly the students take note.
The answers come surely, and admin says purely
my students aren't missing the boat.

So here's to this Valentine's Day
and hooray for the Mimio way!
Engage, interact!
Let's all make a pact
to use Mimio every day.

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.
