The goal was to gather students together who were travelling the academic same path ( potentially with the same courses) and provide a way for them to bond, increasing their success through socialization.

 

With an excess of 800 Teams to create and populate, we used PowerShell to automate the process. This process took far longer than expected but it was eventually effective.

 

We are now at the phase of this deployment where analysis and assessment comes into play. The hope is to merge Student Information System data with Teams data. Unfortunately, it seems the data available from Teams is severely limited via API (and not directly but through MS Graph). The alternative of logging in as a tenant Teams administrator to run and download CSVs on a daily basis is also unreasonable. Neither of these give the granular results we are hoping to use.

We would very much like to make all of this show how Teams is benefitting students. We just need some more access or assistance from anyone who may have seen their way past the reporting issue.

Hello @Chuck_Aby   I might suggest that you also post this in the Teams Education Sector community: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-for-education/bd-p/MicrosoftTeamsforEducation
