The Office team have recently announced the first phase of a Preview program for the Microsoft Class Dashboard! The Class Dashboard will be available to Office 365 Education users at no additional charge, and will enable students and teachers to communicate and collaborate like never before!
What is Class Dashboard?
Class Dashboard is an easy-to-use website that brings together familiar Office apps including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook in the context of the classroom. There are many different technology tools available to educators, so the Office team built Class Dashboard to easily integrate with solutions teachers already use in the classroom!
With Class Dashboard teachers and students can stay organised with online storage for all OneNote Class Notebooks, class materials, notes assignments and shared calendars! Keep all of your materials in one place, so you and your students can easily find what you need. Documents and Class Notebooks can be accessed from any device, whether it is at school or on the go!
Class Dashboard enables teachers to get the most out of the tools they already know and love! Teachers will be able to build rich assignments with documents, links, and online reference material, and collaborate with students using Office Online (web versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint accessible from a web browser). They’ll be able to share assignments with students, track progress, give feedback and assign grades, quickly and in one place!
Engage your students
Class Dashboard will seamlessly connect with tools for interactive lessons and presentations, facilitate discussions and collaboration, and support feedback so teachers can enable students to learn in new ways. With OneNote Class Notebook, students will be able to show their creativity and collaborate in notes, drawings, and pictures. Teachers can also provide personalised feedback throughout the learning process!
