  1. Students cannot edit an assignment after submission

    Please could an assignment lockdown feature be introduced? Currently, my students can access their submitted work and make changes before and after I have graded the work. It would be much better if as soon as the student turns in their assignment, or I close the submissions, all files become read only and can only be edited by me. This will allow the students to view the work post submission and take on board the feedback, but prevent changes being made after grading.

    • Provide us with date Teams will be updated to replace MS Classroom

      I have numerous teachers and students using classroom. Please give us a date when Teams will have the classroom components as we will now have to teach everything over again. I like the platform but if you want adoption, it needs to be stable and consistent.

      • Classroom Management / Remote Control from Classroom

        Add feature to enable students to "check in" to a class. Once logged into a Class in Classroom, students could press a button to check in and giving the teacher the ability to have control similar to other computer lab management software.

        This would greatly assist schools who are rolling out 1-to-1 initiatives where students travel from room to room with their devices. Current classroom management software is difficult, if not impossible, to configure in this type of environment.

        Features could/should include:

        1) Ability for a teacher to share their screen to all in classroom
        2) Ability for a teacher…

          • Assignment Control

            I would like to be able to post multiple assignments and be able to control the order students complete them. For example: Assignment one, and two are posted. Students must complete assignment one before beginning assignment.two. This would allow students to move at their own pace, helping differentiate lessons.

              • merge MS classroom with teams

                Teams has a more refined look. You can add the (limited) assignment feature easily to teams. Staff would use teams for collaboration, so why not give a consistent look across different functions/purposes.

                  • Provide PowerPoint style projection mode in OneNote

                    Would like a projection mode for OneNote in which I can read my notes in one OneNote section or page, while projecting a OneNote 'whiteboard' wirelessly which I can ink on and manipulate without students seeing my notes. Working separate instances of OneNote and using extended projection works until I need to scroll the page I'm writing on. The instance that is the extended projection does not move, requiring inconvenient steps while moving about a room. PowerPoint presentation mode allows one to write on the part being projected while reading notes and viewing the next slide all on the same…

                    • Student Added After Assignment is Created

                      If a student is added after an assignment is created, that student should be able to see the assignments that were made before they became a part of that classroom.

                        • Microsoft Needs Organization with their Layout

                          Organization and control. The ability to have everything in one location. Like your competition Schoology.com. If my school district is pushing Microsoft Office let us clean up what you have started with where all teachers can get on board. Your Layout and organization at the moment is so complex that it turns off 90% of all teachers who don't have time to learn a new structure of a Learning Based System. So organization and Layout is key for students, parents and teachers. We don't want 4-6 apps to flip back and forth but having it all in one location. This…

                                        If, while a user is typing a comment, a different user submits a comment, the comment being typed is deleted. Please fix!

                                        • Give private feedback to a student

                                          When you now give feedback on a assignment to a student, every teacher in the Classroom group gets a e-mail copy of the feedback in their mailboxes. That's annoying. Can the feedback please be private for just the student and not send an automatic CC to all the teachers?
