Microsoft Teams for Education

Microsoft Office 365 Edu Teams Image

It’s not even a year since Microsoft launched  Classroom as an app in the Office 365 suite for education and yet by July 31st 2017 it will  be discontinued!  The reason for this is that almost simultaneously  Microsoft launched Teams its chat based work space for business and it has now deemed this to be  a better collaborative platform  for teachers and students to use.  This app will be much easier for teachers and students alike with web, desktop and mobile  versions. Microsoft are integrating  Teams with  MIS data sync  and launching  the product for education.

 

Microsoft say that using  Teams    will allow you to “quickly and efficiently create classes with automatically populated student rosters from their school information system; share files and teaching materials; make announcements; divide the class into project groups and monitor progress; create, distribute and grade quizzes; deliver personalized learning with OneNote Class Notebooks; and distribute, collect and grade assignments.”

We have only just started supporting our customers with use of  Microsoft Classroom but Gaia will now  adjust its support to ready you for use of  Teams . We are also looking at integration of  Teams  into our customised  SharePoint solution.
