< 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.

Cloud / Local Storage Upload

MimioConnect 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.

Alternatively, to upload a file from your computer, select “My Local Drive” and then “Upload Files”. In the dialog that pops up, browse for, and select your file. Or, drag and drop the file into the area shown.

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”.


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.

Image Integration

To add an online image to your lesson, select “Images” and then type in your search term.

The images returned can be previewed, and cycled through using the left and right navigation arrows. Once an image has been chosen, press the “+” icon to add it to the lesson.

During the lesson, the image will appear full-screen as a background, which can be annotated over.
