Question:

Why can I download and view some lessons directly from the featured lessons on the home page and not others?

Answer:

The featured lessons and activities that scroll on MimioConnect's homepage can be downloaded by clicking on the content you are interested in. Once you click on it, you are brought to the location where you can find a description and the content can be downloaded. If the content is a lesson (which has a .ink file extension in its title next to the green download button), it can be downloaded, clicked on and opened for viewing. If the content that you are interested in has a (.mcf) file extension, this denotes a gallery. Even though it can be easily downloaded, it needs to be imported into the notebook gallery to view all the contents.

Answer:

MimioStudio Notebook makes it possible for you to use mathematical symbols in your lessons. One option is to create a file within your Gallery to hold commonly used words and symbols. To do this you can screen clip these items directly from a Word Document and add them into your Gallery. Another option you may want to try is to use the ALT key codes on your keyboard when entering text into a text box in MimioStudio Notebook. Click here for a list of common keyboard shortcuts that might help you.
