The company is currently signing up testers for this educator targeted PowerPoint add-on.

The brand new service, likely to be targeted at the education sector based on information in various Office Mix Knowledge Base entries, transforms PowerPoint presentations into interactive, online lessons, whilst allowing users to share the document with anyone.
