  1. Lock pages

    After distributing a page to students, I would like to mark and review their work and stop them from editing . Onenote team suggested to copy page to my folder! I have a class of 20, I cannot move all their doc 1 by 1 to the teacher folder or make a copy … it would be a waste of time and space- Teachers should have a padlock - so a Homework/page is locked - Students cannot edit again!

    • When distributing pages across notebooks it would be helpful to have the option to distribute to that notebook's content library as well

      We can distribute across notebooks to individual students, why not to the notebooks content libraries as well? Could this be automatic, i.e. each time we distribute to a whole class it also distributes to the content library?

      • The ability to identify student authors who have drawn things in the collaborative workspace.

        Student initials come up when they type something in the collaborative workspace, but they don't when a student draws something. Unfortunately, some students feel the need to draw inappropriate things at times on this page, and it would be nice to be able to easily identify who it was.

        • Lock comments / pages after review

          Once a teacher has reviewed work through OneNote Class Notebook it is currently possible for students to delete or edit the teachers comments. Here in the UK there is a requirement for teachers to provide evidence that they have marked work. This is typically done by handing over books to another member of staff. This can be emulated by making another staff member a Team Owner. However unlike a paper book it is possible for a student to make it look like a teacher has either not reviewed work or has put something entirely inappropriate in the comments.

          So I…

          • Allow teacher to have the option to make a tab not editable in the student section of Class Notebook.

            Making individual student tabs not editable by students but only by teacher can help the student see documentation without the student deleting or changing the information.

            • Consistency across all versions of OneNote and ClassNotebook

              There are such huge inconsistencies in OneNoteOnline, ClassNoteBook, OneNote Desktop App. It means you are juggling between them all to achieve one thing. Not a happy state of affairs. Sometimes achieving noting as a consequence.
              For example:

              The lack of Forms for quizzes in one and not another.
              The lack of Connections in one and not another
              The lack of ClassNotebook tab online

              There is a large list but just one solution, every feature across all versions.

              • distribute sections & section groups across class notebooks

                It would be great to be able to distribute sections and section groups by cross notebook distribution like you can with pages. This would save a lot of time.

                • Incorporating Turnitin.com

                  I would like a plagiarism check function for grading essays. Currently my school uses Turnitin.com but I don’t prefer the grading features (I want to be able to hand write my comments like we can in OneNote).

                      • Distributing pages/sections at a specific time

                        Would make it easier to roll out content if I could set times/dates for the pages/sections to be rolled out other than remembering to do this before the lesson.

                        • Lock page title

                          If a teacher creates a page or more so an assignment, the title of the page needs to be locked.
                          When I go to review student work, if a student changes the page title of the assignment then I get a longer list of assignments to choose from and their assignment is under a different name I have to try and find the correct one and grade it separately. If a page is distributed as an assignment or even regularly provide the option or make the title uneditable

                            Class Notebook tool: change the distribute page feature to keep page/subpage structure when distributing multiple pages to students.
                            Currently, all subpages are "promoted" to the standard page level when they are distributed to students, so that any subpage organization is lost.

                            • Every subpage should be collapsible

                              Every subpage should be collapsible. So say I have a hierarchy like this:

                              root
                              >>>subject 1
                              >>>>>>thing 1
                              >>>>>>thing 2
                              >>>subject 2
                              >>>>>>thing 3
                              >>>subject 3
                              >>>>>>thing 4

                              The only thing that I can collapse is the root page. I'd like to collapse subject 1, 2, and 3 subpages separately. If I put more subpages under thing 1, 2, 3, or 4 I should be able to then collapse those subpages.

                                  • the ability to mass delete a or overwrite a page...

                                    The appearance of an mildly inoffensive word in the reflection on someone's glasses on a screenshot that I used on a lesson title page has caused me to have to go and delete every single page from the students files.... Luckily I only distributed it to 120 students... so that meant that once I was in each of the class notebooks I only had to perform 280 clicks and the innocuous problem was solved...
                                    280 X 4 = 1120 clicks - excluding the pesky mouse movements/tracking involved...

                                      I would love a way to distribute an entire section instead of only single pages.

                                        • embed phet.colorado.edu simulation

                                          I frequently use the html 5 simulations on phet.colorado.edu They have an iframe embed code, and I can't get it to work on a page in onenote. I would love to make labs with the simulation right in the onenote page for students to work more efficiently.

                                          Thank you!
