Teams for Education January updates

Today, we’re excited to announce that additional features we covered in the November 2017 Teams for Education update are now available worldwide, offering rich new teaching and learning opportunities for educators and students who use Microsoft Teams for Education. 

 

Introducing List View

In response to educator feedback, we’ve provided another way to view assignments at a glance. While in list view, easily scroll down or up to see upcoming or past assignments. Just as before, selecting an assignment’s card will open that assignment’s full details. Browse assignments from the Assignments tab inside your class’s General channel, or view assignments across all classes by selecting Assignments from the Teams sidebar. To view assignments in a week-to-week view, toggle to the week view icon or return to today’s date by selecting Go to today.

Multiple class assignment distribution: 

We’ve streamlined assignment distribution for educators managing multiple classrooms. Now, Assignments in Microsoft Teams for Education offers the ability to create and assign a single assignment to multiple classes at once. With one click, assignments are sent to all the classes you need, saving time and effort. Once your assignment is distributed, it can still be edited and/or deleted within an individual class.  Note: Multi-class distribution for OneNote assignments goes into beta for early February.Multi-class.png

We hope you enjoy these updates, and we encourage you to reach out with feedback any time to @MicrosoftTeams or @MicrosoftEDU

Thank you for the update, it will definitely helpful for teachers who teach multiple classes with same assignments.

About the update, there is a feature that catches my attention, Schedule to assign later.

When will this feature rolled out into Teams? Or it's already there but need additional settings to enable it?

This looks great but I really need to be able to import already existing onenote classbooks into teams. I am already to start using Teams but my classes need access to all their old notes and it is much too cumbersome to have two class notebooks for a class and the thought of copying page by page or section by section is totally unrealistic as I have huge notebooks.  Please can this feature be rolled out to edu in UK

Microsoft

Thanks for this feedback Susan.  We have heard this feedback and hope to have some notion of import later in the school year.  I don't have a date I can share at this time unfortunately.
