Office Mix Customer Preview
Turn your PowerPoints into interactive web presentations

Office Mix is a free PowerPoint 2013/ 365 add-in which can help turn your presentations into interactive online lessons.

Mix provides tools to record you giving your presentation, for instance. You can write on slides as though they were a whiteboard, record audio and video, take screenshots or record what's happening on your desktop. It's all available from the new Mix tab on the PowerPoint ribbon.

You can also include custom quizzes, polls, videos and other apps, direct from the Office Apps store.

Once you've finished - or if you're happy with an existing presentation, and don't need to add new content - simply click the Upload button and it'll be hosted for free at the Mix site.

There are three simple "Permission" options. Mixes can be kept private, or made entirely public. Sensibly, the default is "shareable", which means you can pass the link to whoever you like and they'll be able to browse your work online (not yet on Apple or Android tablets, apparently, although that's due very soon).

Some neat analytics then show you which slides were most popular, and where viewers spent most of their time.

Alternatively, Mix can save your presentation as an MP4 video. The interactivity has to go, of course, but at least it'll be viewable everywhere and on any device.

Verdict:

Office Mix has a good set of recording and capture tools, but the highlight is its ability to quickly host and share your presentations online. The analytics are great, too, and the ability to save your presentation as a video is another welcome feature.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
