Hi! As a teacher, I want to add editable boxes to my PDFs so that students can fill-in-the-blanks and submit their assignments. Is that something that is doable through Adobe or Microsoft Teams?

 

I already know that you can "save as" a Word document, but that typically doesn't render properly at all when you share it will students on an assignment in Teams. I basically have to take my PDFs, create a new document in Word, and retype everything from scratch so that students to submit my assignments. 

 

Help on this would be great! Thanks!

@elateacherfirst thanks for using the Microsoft TC, secondly for assignment there are so many build-in options for Microsoft Teams education version which you could find all the related docs...configuration and usage for teachers, students, and everything from this link... https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/microsoft-teams-5aa4431a-8a3c-4aa5-87a6-b6401abea114?ui=e...

 

besides, there is another alternative easy/quick way I mostly use by creating for the survey and any other information gathering by using Microsoft Forms, create a form with so many options there like multiple questions, information field, and even creating any extra field you need, you could send it to each student, post in Chat, or put in a Channel as tab or announcement/post in a channel.

 

here is the docs about Microsoft Forms... https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-a-form-with-microsoft-forms-4ffb64cc-7d5d-402f-b82...
