Classroom-Software

We are thrilled to officially announce the release of two new updates this week to MimioStudio™ and MimioMobile™. MimioStudio 11.3 now integrates with all MimioClassroom™ products, offering teachers more support to facilitate ongoing assessments and collaborative learning. The update also includes an expanded Collaborate feature. Now teachers have the option of having a single student, group or the entire class work together on the same activity. MimioMobile 3 App works with our updated MimioStudio software to allow teachers to leverage the mobile devices they already have in the classroom more effectively. In fact, MimioMobile App allows teachers to deliver collaborative lessons across any Apple or Android mobile device for up to 50 students at a time. Each student can now use a mobile device equipped with the MimioMobile application to control his or her own MimioStudio Notebook page, building on the interactive activities and lessons already created by the teacher.

There is no company more committed than Mimio to finding better ways for teachers and students to use interactive technology.  Whether students are working independently, in groups or at the front of the class, MimioStudio and MimioMobile now offer new opportunities for collaboration, ongoing assessment and enhanced learning. We invite you to discover more about what the new Mimio updates can do for you.

Our Year in Review

Posted by Manny Perez on Tue, Jan 6, 2015


 

Dear Team, Partners, and Educators,BW_Headshots_Blog_Manny

2014 was a very busy and exciting year for Mimio. This was our first full year under new ownership and the team was running full throttle transitioning the business, while continuing to deliver on new product innovations and world class support to our partners and customers.  Our passion for improving how technology is integrated into classrooms and changing the lives of teachers and students carried us through, as we made significant strides forward both as a business and as a team.  I am amazed at what we have been able to accomplish together and would like to spend a few moments to reflect back.

Striving to provide a great customer experience is at the heart of what we do.  I am inspired and impressed with the support our team and our partners have been able to deliver to our customers.  This is a true testament to the dedication of the people that stand behind our products. 

I am proud to say that with the launch of MimioDisplay and MimioBoard, Mimio is now the only interactive classroom technology company able to provide a full array of front of the classroom instructional solutions.  MimioDisplay helps deliver stunning, high definition lessons on a touch enabled flat panel display in a variety of form factors. MimioBoard provides an interactive touch enabled solution for classrooms with an existing projection system.  Both allow up to six individuals to collaborate simultaneously using Mimio’s award winning MimioStudio software.  These products together with our MimioProjector and MimioTeach products allow Mimio to meet the configuration and needs of any classroom.

We also made significant upgrades to both MimioStudio and MimioMobile.  MimioStudio now provides an out of the box solution for tablets and smartphones, with the ability to unlock even more power through the MimioMobile Add-On.  This was a free upgrade to all licensed MimioStudio customers.  We also extended MimioMobile to provide true real-time collaboration for up to 50 iOS and Android devices simultaneously.  This was also a free upgrade to all licensed MimioMobile subscribers.

I am proud of what the Mimio team has been able to accomplish this year through a lot of hard work and dedication.  I am thankful to our amazing partners, both old and new, that continue to work with us to provide these solutions to our customers.   But most of all, I am thankful for the teachers that use our products every day to make a difference in the classroom and in the lives of children.

Thank you for all that you do.

We have a lot to do in 2015. If we are able to deliver on even half of what we have planned, it could be our most exciting year yet.  Be on the lookout for new releases of MimioStudio and MimioMobile, alongside of some significant new hardware innovations.  More to be shared soon. 

Everyone at Mimio shares my commitment to keep innovating and improving on what we have created, while actively involving our community of teachers, administrators, partners and employees in our success.  

All of us at Mimio wish you a Happy New Year and all the best in 2015.
