Using the MimioStudio Recorder

Cameron.Nichols's picture

I teach chemistry and physics so is there a way that I can record each step as I show students how to solve a problem using Mimio?

Answer: 
You will be so happy to know that we have exactly what you are looking for! One of my favorite applications, the MimioStudio Recorder, would be perfect for you to use to create a video for your students. To access the Recorder, simply go to the APPLICATIONS button on your toolbar. Once you press on the button you will see a drop down menu appear where you will find the RECORDER. 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 in.

Can Students Use MimioStudio Software?

Can my students use MimioStudio to complete a project?

Answer: 

Thank you for such an excellent question Joe! Over the years, I have worked with many teachers who have had students use MimioStudio Notebook software to create various projects. In some of the schools that I have been in, MimioStudio software has been installed in all of the computer labs to give students access to this amazing interactive software. Students can also download the trial version of MimioStudio to use at home by clicking here

The great thing about students using MimioStudio to create a project is that not only can they present information to other students, but they can also make their projects dynamic and interactive. Some of the student lessons that I have seen in the past involve students researching information about a topic, presenting that information in MimioStudio Notebook, and then creating some sort of interactive activity for other students to complete within the project. Students include activities such as Vote template questions, drag and drop activities, and a variety of uses of the Mimio pen and highlighter tool. Each student file can then be combined into a dynamic MimioStudio based jigsaw activity that can be used in the lab, at home, or at the board.

A sample lesson that features this type of student created activity would include the “Deciding Congress”lesson. In this lesson, students use MimioStudio in order to present research about state and local candidates in the recent election. While the election may be over, this lesson demonstrates how students can use MimioStudio to showcase their learning.

With Veterans Day this weekend, you may also want to examine the “Veterans Day”lesson.

This is a lesson that I created last year to teach my students about the importance of Veterans Day. In this lesson after some interactive instruction, students use MimioStudio software to create a “tribute page” to a Veteran they wish to thank for their service. These individual student pages are then combined by the teacher into one .ink file. The file serves as a digital “THANK YOU” for their service.

Mimio would like to thank all of our Veterans for their service!

Adding Hyperlinks to Your Lesson

mkalowe's picture
This is my first time using Mimio to create a presentation for my students. I would like to put a link to a video to my lesson. I would also like an icon in the corner of each page to change to the next page or return to a previous one.

Answer: 
This short video demonstrates how to insert hyperlinks in your MimioStudio Notebook lessons. This video will demonstrate how easy it is within MimioStudio software to create a hyperlink. Hyperlinks within MimioStudio can allow you to quickly access websites, files on your computer, attachments within your .ink file, and to other pages in your Mimio lesson.



To add a hyperlink to your lesson, simply do the following:

  • Use the "select" tool to choose the object or text in your lesson you would like to hyperlink.

  • Right click then click "hyperlink." You can also click "Insert" and then "Hyperlink"

  • Now use the "Insert Hyperlink" pop up window to assign the hyperlink. You can link to an outside website, a file on your computer, an attachment within your Notebook file, or another page within your lesson.
