  1. A way for students to submit an assignment and, once submitted, not be able to access it or any other students view it.

    This is a great tool!! We have many faculty that are looking for a way, either here or in SharePoint, to have students submit assignments but then not be able to access them anymore (deadline). Also, no student could view others' assignments. I know students could email the assignment to the faculty; however, they (the faculty) do not want to drag many emails into one spot, they would like the students to "drop" the assignments into a section or folder (SharePoint) that could then no longer be viewed or accessed by them or other students.

    • Lock teacher mark up comments from deletion

      When I give formative feedback onto a students workbook page, I don't want that to be deleted. If the student wants to edit the page after I have marked it then they should create a copy of that page so my feedback stays as evidence of assessment and progression of learning.

      • In the ClassNotebook, have a tab that would allow students to "turn in" work (thus making their document 'read-only').

        Enabling a document to turn to 'read-only' status or "lock" the document would be absolutely wonderful in the OneNote Class Notebook. It would almost be like a 'submission' tab which would not allow the student to continue to work on the submitted version. This would allow me, an English teacher, the time to grade a long essay without worrying about students continually editing/changing their work before I get to it.

            • Teaching Planner

              The ability to set up a simple teaching planner similar to the paper based books many teachers use.
              It would be ideal if we could choose the number of periods in a day and then input our timetable and then it could populate a page for a day with classes that day and teachers could plan out lessons paper free.

              • Ability to screencast in OneNote

                Currently one is able to save screen clippings, record audio, record video, but there is not a screencast option that allows you to record "whiteboarding" within OneNote.

                "When we solve a math problem, we talk about it as we write; we'd like written & audio captured into a screencast video" ^Cal

                • Gradebook section

                  Add a gradebook sectione

                  It would be great if OneNote for Classrooms had a gradebook section/system similar to the LMS. For us, having this feature would allow more faculty members to use OneNote exclusively.

                  • Sync content library across multiple class notebooks

                    As a rotary teacher with multiple classes who each have separate class notebooks, many classes have the same documents in their content libraries.

                    If I have a document which changes in one content library, I have to copy those changes to each class notebook. I am a music teacher with fingering charts for different instruments. If I tweak a change to one fingering chart in one class' content library, I have to copy these changes to all of the class' content libraries. Quite a process for 8 classes.

                    Any way of syncing these changes automatically?

                        • Merge Cells

                          The option to merge cells in a table would be great particularly when creating timetables etc, you can block out several cells.

                          • Lock a student section for grading

                            Teacher asked me:is there a way to temporarily deactivate a student’s ability edit a specific page? For example, I have students submit lab reports via onenote, but I can’t grade them all in one night. This means that if I can’t deactivate their ability to change a page, they could go in and make changes after that.

                            Would love to see this feature added!

                            • real time collaboration

                              Class notebooks require a change so that real-time collaboration is a thing. When using my class notebook in class with my 1:1 ratio of computers, we have many sync errors on pages, as well it takes time for student's input to sync to the notebook.

                                It would be nice if we can set password protection for page and subpages too

                                  Today the pages are visible for students at the time I distribute the pages in the class notebook. I would like to plan the distributon by setting a day and time - instead of making a memo for myself to distribute at a given time.

                                  • Office Lens would be a great app to use with Onenote class notebooks.

                                    Unfortunately, Office lens doesn't work with office 365 accounts!! This is really annoying- our whole school uses office 365- if I want students to photograph their project work at the moment, they have to either email their pics to themselves, download them and then re upload them into their class notebooks. If they could take a pic, and upload it DIRECTLY to their class notebook, they'd be much more likely to do it! at the moment, they cant be bothered. Class notebooks were a great step forward for onenote- this would make it even better

                                    • Make a shared Groupwork area for a group within your class

                                      I would like to be able to set up section/pages within a notebook that can only be edited and/or viewed by a small group within the class.

                                      e.g. I want 5 groups of 5 students each to have their own private shared area.

                                      Just having one large shared area for everyone is quite limiting...

                                      • Being able to delete a section from all students folders

                                        If you setup the onenote with the 4 default sections accidentally but really don't use some of them. It would be nice to be able to delete it from all students folders at once. Especially in the initial setup stages

                                        • please reinstate the insert printout function in ClassOneNotes created through

                                          Please reinstate the ability to 'insert a printout' in the Class OneNotes created through MS classroom. This function has been modified to not embed the associated file...this means the printout can not be opened or edited and refreshed from within OneNote.

                                          This was one of the BEST features of OneNote for class use.

                                          If it cant be reinstated then at least provide the ability for it to be an option for Office admins or teachers to set when managing a classroom.
