1. Say hello to your new class home page in Teams

Home page = one place to communicate with your class
We’ve been listening to feedback from educators and students using Microsoft Teams for EDU and one thing is clear: you’re looking for one place to catch up on all things, in one place. As a result of your input, we are thrilled to introduce the new home page feature rolling out to all class teams for Back to School. Home page will be included automatically with all class teams and provides a central landing destination to check the latest announcements, pinned class resources, upcoming assignments, recently edited class files, and more!


To get started, simply select Home page to launch it for the first time. The app will pull in any assignments, virtual class meetings, or files you’ve already started adding. The rest can be customized by selecting Edit and then publishing your changes. Add fun images, additional sections, or key information about you and your class. Only educators can make changes to your class home page, so you have control over what you’d like to share. You can even set it all up to your liking before activating your class team and admitting your students at the start of the school year.


We’re excited to bring this new feature to you and your students and look forward to hearing how you set up home pages for your unique classrooms.

When: July / Aug.

 

 

2. Reading Coach, plus new tools for Reading Progress to help students improve their reading fluency

Introducing Reading Coach
With the launch of Reading Progress in August of 2021, we received an influx of stories from you about the excitement that’s been generated for students. Instead of feeling nervous when it’s time to do fluency checks, students felt empowered – especially through seeing their progress over time. To extend independent practice opportunities and build scaffolds for students to pursue their reading goals, we’ve added a new feature called Reading Coach. Reading Coach builds on Reading Progress by identifying the five most challenging words for each individual student and presenting those words with tools to support the learner in practicing independently. Based on educator preferences, tools available to students can include text to speech, syllable breaking, and picture dictionary. When creating a Reading Progress assignment, educators can turn on and customize the Reading Coach experience. To extend learners’ agency in developing their reading skills, we’re also building Reading Coach into Immersive Reader! Students can use Immersive Reader to remove distractions and read comfortably on the web, and in parallel, use Reading Coach to reinforce the new vocabulary they encountered. Reading Coach in Teams is rolling out now, while Reading Coach in Immersive Reader will be rolling out in late Summer / early Fall.

When: Rolling out now


Setting Language or Locale for a Reading Progress passage
Educators may need to change or update the language tags of a document added in a Word, PDF or OneNote page to get the best results from Reading Progress. We’ve now added an Edit Language feature to make changing a language or locale from, for example, French (France) to French (Canada), as easy as a couple of clicks.

When: Available now

 

Fifteen new auto-detect languages
We are excited to announce that we have added support for fifteen new auto-detect languages in Reading Progress, bringing our total to 116. The new languages include Afrikaans (South Africa), Amharic (Ethiopia), French (Belgium), Icelandic (Iceland), Javanese (Indonesia), Khmer (Cambodia), Lao (Laos) Macedonian (North Macedonia), Burmese (Myanmar), Dutch (Belgium), Sinhala (Sri Lanka), Serbian (Serbia), Swahili (Tanzania), Uzbek (Uzbekistan), and Zulu (South Africa). To see the full list of supported languages, please visit this site.

 

When: Available now

 

Improvements to Timed Passage
Many educators like to create a Timed Passage in Reading Progress to keep the data they're collecting consistent. We’ve been working to improve that feature to save educators more time. Now, whenever a timed passage is set and the student doesn’t finish their reading in the allotted time, a small marker will show on the page and gray out the words the student didn’t get to (example shown below). Previously, words that were not read were marked as omissions, which impacted the data and took time for educators to fix. With this update, Correct Words per Minute and Accuracy will be calculated against only the words that were read before the time limit was reached.

When: Available in July

 

Create and Review Assignments on iPad and Android tablets
In the past, educators have been able to create and review Reading Progress assignments on Teams for Desktop PC, Mac and Web Browser, but not on Teams for iPad or Android tablets. Coming this July, Teams will be rolling out support for assignment creation and review on these two mobile platforms.


When: Available in July

 

3. Introducing Search Coach – a simple, powerful tool for finding reliable information online

In a world that is increasingly dependent on online resources, and continually threatened by false and misleading information, Search Coach is a free tool (now available in private preview) that provides context and guidance for students to ask effective questions and discover reliable sources. Search Coach is a search engine with training wheels - designed to teach students how to compose efficient search queries and evaluate their results while also providing insights to educators about students' search skills. SafeSearch is on by default, and there are no ads in Search Coach results. The patterns taught in Search Coach can be applied in traditional search engines like Bing and Google, as well as many academic search engines. With filters to narrow search results to specific domains or filetypes, the capacity to build curated lists and provide fact-checking resources and more tools for creating efficient queries, Search Coach helps students develop research skills for their academic careers and beyond!

 

Ready to try Search Coach for yourself? Fill out this short form to start the process with IT admin and join the Search Coach preview team, where you can try Search Coach, chat with other educators, and gain access to the latest and greatest resources.

 

When: Now available for preview

 

 

4. What’s New for Assignments and Grades

Now supports up to 1,000 students
If you have larger class sizes and were unable to utilize the Assignments and Grades features, Teams has now added support for classes up to 1,000 students and has updated the functionality to allow educators to return all submissions to their students, without needing to wait for the work to be complete.

When: Rolling out now


Rubrics updated for Educators & Students on mobile devices

We’re excited to give some love to educators and students on mobile devices, too! With this new upgrade, you can now create and edit rubrics directly from your mobile devices, and students can more easily read rubrics on their mobile devices, as well.

When: Available now

 

Apps Support in Grading Pane
It has been great to see the growth in partner applications that are supported in Assignments, and we’re continuing to add new partner apps all the time. We have now updated the Grading pane in Assignments to also support apps. This allows the educator to launch the app directly from the Grading pane if there is work the student has done within that particular app. Whenever there is an app added to an assignment, it will now be shown in the Grading pane.

When: Available now

 

Additional enhancements to Assignments and Grade Reports
The Insights team has been working to highlight student learning data in Assignments and Grade Reports in a richer, more informative, and easier to use format. With the release of updated Assignments and Grade Reports for educators, you now get:


More data – Access and interpret consolidated data on progress status, grade trends, categories, group assignment information, and coming soon, rubrics and resource usage data.


More granularity – Drill down from the class overview to see data specific to a single student or assignment, and view comparisons to the class average.

 

An improved, actionable experience – Quickly identify student needs by using color-coding and in-context action to move between reports, initiate conversations with students, and navigate directly to the Assignments and Grades apps for next steps.

 

With the improved ability to view data as it applies in the context of a single student or assignment, Education Insights saves you time by presenting data that you can process, communicate with your students directly, and convert into more effective teaching practices.


Learn more about these new enhancements here.

When: July

 

 

5. Tools to help Students plan for their future

Student Engagement Insights are now available in Career Coach for faculty license holders, providing visibility into the aggregate number of engaged students, engaged sessions, resume uploads, and transcript uploads completed in Career Coach. These insights can be accessed directly from the Dashboard page, and the data can be leveraged to help students make decisions about career-related programs and offerings. By viewing these engagement trends over time, faculty and staff can better evaluate the effectiveness of their engagement strategies. To learn more, please visit aka.ms/Career-Coach.

6. Updates to Education Insights

Student Support Spotlight Card
Educators have an almost supernatural ability to pick up on physical cues when students aren't engaged. With online and hybrid education becoming more embedded in schools, students spend more class-time in digital environments, making it harder to pick up on some of these cues. Students need all our support now more than ever, so identifying students who may need additional attention is critical to their success. The new Student Support Spotlight Card in the Education Insights app (now in public preview) aims to help educators “read the room” when their students are online, so they can make sense of student engagement signals, guide their teaching instincts, and develop skills across new educational mediums.


To learn more about this feature and how to enable it to your tenant, please review this blog.

Student Support Spotlight Card.png

When: Available now (public preview)

 

Improved Educator Dashboard navigation
Education Insights provides real-time information regarding students' engagement, learning progress and wellbeing from the Class Overview page. To create an easier entry point for drilling into this student data and reports, we’ve created a more intuitive navigation bar to the Insights tab app. To learn more, please check out this video we created.

Support for Channel Meetings in Teams Meeting LTI
Channel Meetings provides the ability for users to create meetings that target specific channels in the Class Team, instead of a static list of attendees. Channel Meetings also allow you to connect your meetings more content within the Class Team. Create channels for sections or groups in Teams and send an invite using Channel Meetings right from your LMS. The option is available in Teams Meeting LTI now in Canvas, Blackboard and Moodle.

Access video recordings within LMS
To provide a better learning experience, Teams has added the ability to link recordings within an LMS, so educators can access recordings conveniently, whenever they need to. Users will be able to access recordings from Teams Meeting LTI itself, so once a meeting has ended, the recording will be available to all users. Note: an educator can restrict permissions to a recording within Teams if desired.

When: July

 

Easily add email addresses of class attendees
For educators that aren’t using the Teams Classes LTI, there is an easy way to now add attendees to the meetings that they’ve created through the Teams Meetings LTI. Simply Copy/Paste the list of email addresses directly in the Add Attendees section. Email addresses can be separated by semicolon, comma or spaces for ease of input, and will also highlight any invalid email addresses that have been entered.

Now, users will be notified within the LMS itself if there is new activity for them in Microsoft Teams. Users will be redirected to Teams by clicking on the notification icon where they can review the activity in more detail.

When: June

 

Content creation within LMS
The Teams Classes LTI app inside the LMS helps facilitate student and teacher collaboration, but teachers needed to take an extra step in launching Teams to post in the channels. To create a smoother experience for educators, Teams now enables content creation capabilities inside the Teams Classes LTI app, all in an intuitive and discoverable manner.

When: June

 

 

7. New features in Teams Meetings & Channels

New controls to move and resize Presenter video
A new display enhancement within Presenter Mode enables the presenter to choose whether to show up on the left or right side of the content and resize their video feed while automatically adjusting content size accordingly. This can be applied to all modes on Desktop or Window sharing including Standout, Side-by-Side, and Reporter. Now, educators can customize how and where their image shows up alongside the content in their virtual classroom.

When: Available now


Detect Music Automatically
The previously released noise suppression feature removed any unwelcome background noise and retained only speech signals. To avoid suppressing music and to allow you to enable Music mode appropriately, we have created a music detector which will inform you through a notification whenever music is present. This way, you have the choice of selecting whether music is indeed an unwanted background noise, such as when calling into a virtual class from a coffee shop, or if music is a desired signal, such as when participating in a music lesson. whether music is indeed an unwanted background noise, such as when calling into a virtual class from a coffee shop, or if music is a desired signal, such as when participating in a music lesson.

When: Available now


View Together Mode for everyone
Together Mode creates a virtual shared space in which attendees feel like they are sitting in the same room with everyone. Now, educators can use Together Mode in their virtual classroom to give a fresh look, and a more immersive experience for everyone in the class. Previously, this view could only be enabled with an individual view. Simply check the Select Together Mode for Everyone option after you select a scene to enable this feature. This feature is currently only available for Teams Desktop users.

Whiteboard makes working together easier and more fun – whether it’s a teacher sharing an interactive board with their class, or students discussing project ideas with their Whiteboard visual aid while sitting together with their laptops. The new Share menu gives teachers and students an easier way to invite others to a board. It also provides control over the editing capabilities on the board.

Whiteboarding Together.png

 

Once everyone is on the board, both teachers and students can use collaborative cursors to see where everyone else is. These cursors make the board feel more alive and help teachers with more context on where their students are having trouble with the lesson concepts. If the cursors get too distracting, they can be turned off from the Settings menu.

When: Rolling out now

 

Open Existing Whiteboards in Teams Meetings

When: Rolling out now

 

Temporary external Whiteboard access during Teams Meetings
Collaborate across tenant boundaries with new temporary external Whiteboard access during Teams Meetings. For example, students from two different universities, working on a shared research project can now join the same Teams Meeting and collaborate on the same Whiteboard. Access to the Whiteboard for the external user is automatically removed once the meeting ends, and the Whiteboard creator from the meeting retains access in their OneDrive for Business. This feature only applies to customers using Whiteboard on OneDrive for Business, so please click here to learn more.
