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.
The light on my MimioTeach is an amber color and I can't get it to calibrate at all. Any suggestions?
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.
How do I add a sound effect to an image in my lesson?
Watch this short video for a demonstration on how easy it is to link a sound file to an image within your lesson. Not only will it add a little excitement to your lesson but your students will be amazed at what happens when they click on the image.

Is there a limit to how many questions you can ask on a MimioVote test?
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. This one hour training session is available for credit in both an on-demand and live format.
