We are very excited to launch our new Microsoft Search in Bing features uniquely designed to connect you with the info and answers you need for school. Spend less time searching and more time doing what the classroom is for—teaching and learning!
Our goal with this new search experience is to make managing school work, assignments, and tasks as easy as searching the web, for both educators and students. There's no setup required and getting started is as easy as going to Bing.com, signing in with your school account, and searching.
Here’s what you can find:
On Bing, you will be able to search and find your school specific information, like your classes and assignments from Teams, and much more.
See your upcoming classes and join them easily with Microsoft Teams.
Students can find out which homework assignment is due next and start working on it with just a click.
Find answers to common questions about your school and links to popular resources and tools.
See your profile, connect with other teachers, and more.
On Bing, you will be able to look up and find files, conversations, site you access often easily, saving a lot of time having to locate these.
Get quick access to your documents and files, as well as files others have shared with you. To keep your school's info private and secure, you can only find files you have access to.
Read messages sent to you in private chats and see what other teachers and students have said in public conversations.
Find SharePoint sites and other school pages you have access to.
Here are a few other things you can do on Bing to improve yours and your students productivity.
Look up definitions for acronyms and abbreviations used at your school.
