How Can We Help?

Importing Content into a Lesson

You are here:
< All Topics

After setting up a lesson, content can be imported from multiple sources. Supported file types include Microsoft Office documents, Google Docs, PDFs, multimedia including images, videos, and audio, and other interactive whiteboard software including Smart Notebook, Promethean ActivInspire, MimioStudio, and Common File Format (CCF / IWB) files.

To begin the process, from the Menu, select “Import / Insert”.

Uploading to MimioConnect

You can import files directly from your computer into MimioConnect. Click the “Upload Files” button, or drag and drop your file from your computer’s folder into the MimioConnect application.

MimioConnect also integrates with Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. From the menu on the left, choose either Google Drive or OneDrive to connect with, and then log in. After logging in, you will then be able to browse for and choose the file to import.

Importing Specific Slides / Pages

Some file types allow specific slides or pages to be chosen for inclusion in the lesson, such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and PDFs. After uploading one of these file types, thumbnails of each page or slide will appear, and the “+” icon can be selected or deselected as needed. After choosing specific pages, click “Add” and the chosen pages will be inserted into the lesson.

If all slides or pages are required, then choose the option for “Add all pages”.


PhET Interactive Simulations

MimioConnect gives you integrated access to science and math simulations for teaching STEM topics, including physics, chemistry, biology, and math, from University of Colorado Boulder.

Search via subject, topic, and educational level and instantly make your MimioConnect lessons even more fun and engaging.


YouTube Integration

To add a YouTube video to the lesson, press the YouTube tab, and then search for a video.

The results returned can be previewed. Once a video has been chosen, press the “+” icon to add it to the lesson.

During the lesson, the video will appear full-screen and be ready for playback.
