More BETT Product Updates for Office 365
In the past few days, we’ve made some exciting Microsoft Education announcements for the #BETT2018 conference, including blogs from:
There always so many things to talk about, that we cannot always fit what we want into our bigger blogs. We have a set of new product updates below Sway, Forms, Learning Tools and OneNote, as well as more feature details for Teams. In the spirit of "Too Much Is Never Enough!", we want to make sure we let all educators know about our adidtional improvements. Keep the feedback coming, and always feel free to reach out directly to @MicrosoftEDU
Something we hear frequently from teachers is a desire to share student learning experiences with parents. Sway has been a popular choice for many teachers making it easy and time efficient to share learning in the form of pictures, videos, documents, and more. We have listened to feedback and made some improvements that were made available very recently. Teachers now have the ability to brand their newsletters with school logo and branding color support and can track parent engagement with analytics. And the next newsletter will be that much easier with the new ability to create a custom Sway template.

Teachers use Microsoft Forms to create quizzes, polls, or surveys. They can quickly create a survey or quiz in just a few minutes, send to students to fill out on any device, and see the results in real time. Listening to millions of users' voices, and leveraging latest Microsoft technology, we improved Microsoft Forms to be more collaborative and productive, by adding the following top-requested capabilities.
