Answer: Would you like to quickly add shapes, lines, and even transparent objects to your interactive lessons?


The MimioStudio Toolbar allows you to easily add content to your MimioStudio Notebook such as: rectangles, squares, triangles, circles, lines, and more. You can even make objects in your lessons transparent by using the MimioStudio Shape and Line Tools.


The short video below will demonstrate where you can find the Shape and Line Tools on your MimioStudio Toolbar. The video also reveals how these simple shapes and lines can be used in your lessons to enhance student interaction and engagement.



The Shape and Line Tools can be found under the 3rd icon to the right on the MimioStudio toolbar. By right-clicking on that icon, you will bring up a drop-down menu of shapes, as well as line/arrow choices for your lessons. Choose a shape, choose your color for both the interior and exterior, then click and drag on your Mimio page to create your shape. Experiment with shapes and lines to add interest to your lessons!


If you would like to learn even more about the MimioStudio Line and Shape Tools and take your skills to the next level, you might be interested in attending our MimioStudio Basics I: A Tour of MimioStudio Quick Learn session.
