Voice-Over Presentations and Hosting Them

Voice-over presentations are used in many courses, both in-class and online. However, many students cannot distribute them because of the large file sizes. These tutorials below will help you save your presentation and host it on a web service, so all you have to do is provide your instructor or fellow classmates a web link to access your presentation.

Using Microsoft Mix (the easiest and best way!)
Note: Only available for PCs.
  1. Install Office Mix as a PowerPoint add-in. You can download it by following this link: https://mix.office.com/Home/Setup. When you log in, you can use your KUMC credentials or any Microsoft account. You can get a free account by following this link: https://account.microsoft.com/account
  2. Follow these instructions on how to upload your PowerPoint presentation to Mix: https://mix.office.com/watch/7o6kt118pguk
  3. Use the link in Mix to share your voice-over presentation. Note: Make sure to set the correct access level before you share.
