Office Mix is an add-in to PowerPoint 2013/16 developed by Microsoft. It allows users to transform PowerPoint presentations, to online interactive lessons and share them with everyone and everywhere with an internet connection.
Office Mix lets you record audio or video of yourself giving a presentation, write on your slides as you speak to them, insert quizzes, polls, online videos and it even gives you the ability to take a full screen caption of whatever you do on your personal computer.

A slide recording is a PowerPoint slide show enhanced with audio, video and inking. The easiest way to create one, is by creating a PowerPoint presentation first and then record on top of your slides.
At this point, you need to decide which elements you want to record. Under Audio and Video:
To add Inking.
When you are done, you are ready to begin Recording.
With screen recording you can caption and also narrate, all the actions you took in any other program on a computer that uses windows, instead of only posting screenshots.
Interactive content is what you add to your Mix (quizzes, polls, science and math simulations and videos from Khan Academy), which your viewers can interact with directly and you can observe their results afterwards.
To view the analytics from your quizzes and polls after you have published your Mix, go to your Uploaded Mixes on the My Mixes page https://mix.office.com/MyMixes/Uploaded and select Analytics. Under the title of your Mix, select by exercises.
* After you add interactive content to a slide, you can copy paste it on other slides. Furthermore, you can download apps from the office store, but Office Mix collects analytics only for the apps that are included in the Lab Apps for Office.
Uploading/Exporting your Office Mix
Upload to Mix
When you select the Upload to Mix option, your Mix is published to your My Mixes page in the cloud of the Office Mix website. This way, your file will be saved and you will be able to share it using its URL, or either link it or embedded on other websites.
Export to video
When you select the Export to Video option, your Mix is converted into a video that viewers can watch offline. You can save the video on your desired location, but this will not automatically save it to your My Mixes page. By saving your Mix as a video, means that you can treat it as a video and publish it on YouTube or other sites. But because it won’t be a Mix all the interactive properties (hyperlinks, quizzes, polls, simulations, etc.) and the Analytics data will be unavailable.
