Hi. Created a new channel under General. But i dont see the assignments tab. Only conversations, files and notes. The Allow external apps is already turned on in O365 settings. Anybody knows where im going wrong?

Dear @Jim Federico

"Rather than presenting a partial list of assignments under each unit, we decided that having a central place for students to go to review all of their assignments (past, present and future) would be more intuitive."

I understand that it would be intuitive for you but you guys are not the end-users. Is there any app you can recommend we can add assignments to channels?

There may be 3rd party solutions that have Teams integrations that work the way you described above. If there are, they would be available via the Teams app gallery.

@Jim Federico Hi Jim - is it possible please for assignments to be set for a group of tagged students, rather than selecting them individually?  This would help with the no assignments in channels issue.

Fantastic feedback @KatyS . Thank you!

@Jim Federico Do you think that might be a possibility?

It is very disappointing to see the same response trotted out each time 'we thought it would be better', when so many of us are clearly saying it isn't better. I'm comparig with googleclassroom at the moment and that allows assignments anywhere. This is a significant issue. The third party tool offered in channels looks cumbersome and requires me to hand over permission to a lot of things I would prefer not to, so not a solution. I presume there is some design issue that makes it tricky? Sort it out please.

I have three different groups with three different assignments. How do I post it so that each group only gets their assignments?

hello, could you please tell me some add-on apps that i can give assignments in my private channel. thank you

If you have MS Teams for EDU, Assignment and Grade tabs are embedded only under General Teams. They're not available under channels because of its classification.

Hi @Jim Federico, Hello Everyone; 

Our school moved from Google Classroom to MS Teams. Our teachers quickly echoed the above sentiments where "assignments can only be created in the general classroom. And it is not clear how assignments can be associated with a particular class."

Could the issue be that (at a minimum):
1) As an educator: I do not mind creating a New Assignment under the General Tab
2) As an educator: When a New Assignment is created, I would like for MS-Teams to please 'Announce' this on both:
 2.a) The General Stream/Tab and on
 2.b) The Tab for the particular class (.e.g if the assignment pertains to math class, it is announced in that math class' stream).
3) As a student, I would like to see all assignments pertaining to me, that are due etc...
4) As a student, I would like to see the order in which my assignments are due
4) As a student, I would like to see to which each assignment pertains 

As a student, I may be in Kindergarten or Grade 1 and not necessarily in the higher grades. This means my User-Experience and User-Interface needs are different from students at higher grade levels. It further means that as a student my UI and UX needs are different than those of an adult in the corporate world.

I see that categories were a suggested solution. I will give this a try. In the interim would you know off the top of your head which additional complement of tools/features would be able to help achieve the above. And at the same time what changes does Microsoft have in mind for improving the UX here.

Hi @Jim Federico and everyone else.

 

My school has app. 100 boarding students of the same age, who are cross-mixed into different classes and activities according to their needs and wishes. Our ambition is to add them all to one team and create private channels for each class or activity. This is only feasible if it is possible to tag a channel in  assignments. We cant pick out the specific names for every assignment, and we can't give all assignments to all students. 

 

I would suggest simply adding a 'channel' search just like the name search, or perhaps the ability to add channels as well as names, when chossing to whom to assign the assignment.

 

This solution is related to former suggestion of tagging a subset of students, but is simpler and would solve the problem.

Dear Jim, my guess is that you are an IT Professional not a Teacher. I have the good fortune of been both, particularly the former for the majority of my career including as a software development consultant.

Your users are telling you how they work - you are telling them they are wrong. WHen you get so many users bothered to let you know guess what. Maybe they are right. The institance that your methodology is correct, when you don't have experience in their shoes is naive - this is a chance for MS to do a land grab on a territory Google have been whipping you in. Show some flexibility and give the users what they want. Teams is great. A bit more work and it could be fabulous.

@stedmana  I absolutely concur with your experience. I call it "Team sprawl" and in a school of only 770 students and 90 teachers we have already ended up with over 1500 teams. Very quickly becoming unmanageable.

 

I can reduce 50 or more teams into 3 if MS would facilitate assignments in channels. In a team with over 200 students it is time consuming for the teachers to set assignments to specific sets of pupils. We can't even speed the process up by using tags or better still groups. 

 

Its creating lots of stress at a stressful time for what looks to be a relatively trivial change..

Hi Jim,
I just want to suggest that if assignments in every channel is not possible why not to link assignments to specific channels. The assignments should be uploaded and managed from the one place i.e. general tab but on the other hand they should have option to to b connected with a channel so that it can be seen in relevant channel.
This will not harm the idea of central management of assignments and also solves the problem of assignments in the channel.

@Jim Federico  WE have a team who tutor our TY transition year group. Each of us in a Tutor role, but I have tried to make one team with each class group in a channel.

This works in my head in that general announcements can be put in the general channel, but for anything requiring submission to a tutor I was hoping to put into their class channel under an assignments tab. This way the Tutor can keep their class submissions separate and an tick them off against a class list rather than sifting through all 105 students.

Hi Jim, how do I create this subset? This would be extremely handy for staff in terms of multi-level classes. Within 1 class there may be 4 separare levels or even differentiated materials/assignments for some areas/topics of work. If this is possible, it may even be easier to have an entire year group as the 'class' for generic work and the various levels within created as subsets. I'm keen to look into this. Thanks in advance.

@Jim Federico  I have created a team for a class and under that team I have channels for groups within the class. It would be great if assignment would be added to the channel to an assignment could be assigned to a channel and not just individual students. 

This would make it easy when giving group assignments. Also it would be great to have the possibility of annotating assignments submitted in pdf.

These features make the teacher's workflow easier.

I am surprised if not appalled that it has been two years and this question still stands where it was. It seems that such a trivial issue is forcing people to move away from teams instead of shifting to it. Anyways, I really hope they make it possible to allow adding the assignment tab to every channel.

On creating a new assignment (from within the Assignments window), it's posted to the specified channel BUT is this the result you hope for or have i missed the point?

Hi,

 

I am a professor teaching electrical engineering and we are planning to switch tom steams soon. Regarding the philosophy behind not allowing an assignments tab in created channels and having this app work in a more centralized fashion.. Even though this is the philosophy adopted by Microsoft from their point of view, I still think that they should allow the educator the choice and option to design their virtual classroom with the highest degree of freedom. Not all courses and teaching institutions are the same and this means forcing one philosophy of doing things is very limiting and a bit narrow-minded.
