New classroom-focused features rolling out to Microsoft Teams
Microsoft has announced that a new batch of classroom-focused features is now rolling out to its Slack competitor, Teams, across 181 markets in 25 languages. Originally detailed at the tech giant's recent education event in New York, the new features aim to make using Teams in the classroom a little more manageable.
Here's a look at the main new features (opens in new tab) rolling out now:
- School Data Sync automatically populates classes with student rosters connected to the school's information system.
- OneNote Class Notebooks are built into every class, allowing teachers to organize interactive lessons and deliver personalized learning right from Teams.
- Apps integrate into the classroom experience, so teachers can quickly access the Office 365 apps they already use – like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Planner – and customize their classroom with education apps.
- End-to-end assignment management in Teams enables teachers to move quickly and effortlessly from creation and distribution to grading and feedback.
These new features are now rolling out to all Office 365 for Education users. Teachers interested in checking Teams out can learn more at Microsoft's Office in Education (opens in new tab) portal.
