OneNote continues to be the leading light in the Office365 suite for schools and the Class Notebook is a big reason for this. It’s pleasing to see that constant development is happening in this product and Microsoft released new features this week. Pleasingly, these include some of the most requested features from teachers such as:
- Easily see when students have started their work in a distributed page or assignment.
- Quickly see which pages you, the teacher, have already reviewed.
- See if a student added any new content after a teacher has already reviewed or graded a page
