  2. Private tabs in Staffnotebook

    I am a secretary at an elementary school. I set up and teach all the teachers about Office 365. By default I am the owner of the Staffnotebook. It would be nice if the individual tabs could be made private.
    Example: I am sure a teacher would not want me to be able to read their evaluation notes from the Principal. If I could set privileges for each tab, the teacher could block me from seeing that specific tab.
    Example: setting up a PLC (Proffessional Learning Communities) notebook, we would not have to have an individual notebook for each grade.…

  3. Allow parent access to individual student's Notebook

    At the moment, only the teacher and the individual student have access to each student's Notebook. Parents will often ask about their child's progress and what they are specifically doing in class but are not able to see for themselves.

    I am not sure of the best way to implement this but either allow the teacher the ability to add outside users or allow an individual student the ability to add someone themselves.

    I am able to share my Notebook with outside users but it only allows access to my section. I want to be able to allow parent X…

  4. Add a function to send a page to all my students (into their Class Notebooks)

    Dear OneNote developers,

    I am a teacher and MIE Expert for 2015 and 2016 and I have been using OneNote in our school for three years now. I have a suggestion for a functionality that would be great not just for our school but for every teacher using OneNote, especially if they use OneNote Class Notebook in Office 365.

    Very often I place various kinds of worksheets or other kind of study material in our collaboration space / library using OneNote Class Notebook and I want my students to fulfill them individually. I taught all my students how to copy…

  5. OneNote Class and Staff Notebook API

    On the following page:
    https://blogs.office.com/2015/05/20/onenote-gets-ready-for-summer-technology-planning-with-updates-for-everyone/

    It mentions:
    [...]
    our new and upcoming REST APIs will allow IT administrators to automate Class and Staff Notebook administration processes such as class roster management and movement of pages in and out of OneNote. Partners will also be able to use the APIs to integrate the Class and Staff Notebooks deeply into their solution. The API will allow programmatic access for:

        Creating Class and Staff Notebooks
    
    Adding & removing students and teachers (for roster synchronization with Student Information Systems)
    Copying OneNote pages (for integration into Learning Management System assignment distribution and collection workflows)
    Replicating

  6. 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.

  7. Hand in and plagiarism tool

    Hi again! One thing that keeps teachers tied to multiple platforms is the ability to control hand-in assignments and plagarism. My last idea about timing tabs and pages to become visible and invisible for students would solve one part of this, but an automated plagarism control, like Ephorus, of selected tabs and pages, would be a great addition as well. Again, great potential here!

  8. Embed video,Embed video, webpages, and other live content in OneNote

    Embed video,Embed video, webpages, and other live content in OneNote

    Please make it possible to embed an iframe. It would be so powerful for creating interactive textbooks (for example in math with GeoGebraTube) or embed YouTube Videos!
    This is the most wished Feature for me, cause OneNote could become the Standard for new interactive textbooks as it is free on EVERY Plattform!!! webpages, and other live content in OneNote

  9. Private work area for the teacher

    The welcome pages to the left of a shared notebook are visible to the students..would be great if these were private to the teacher so they could be used for lesson ideas, notes on students etc

  10. Move or copy section group to another notebook

    Would love the ability to move or copy an entire section group to another notebook without having to individually move/copy each section and then create a new section group in the other notebook.

  11. Class notebook students alphabetize by last name.

    Currently when you create a class and add students, the student sections are alphabetized by first name. Most grading apications and other systems go by last name. If it would order them by last on creation would save a lot of time.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  16. OneNote stickers

    I am an elementary teacher and have recently had my students complete an assignment in a class notebook. While leaving comments about their work I thought about how much I'd like an option to insert a sticker. Kids love stickers on their work. Animated stickers would be even cooler to them.

  18. Better student managing/deleting users

    I want to be able to delete students and teachers from my notebook from the same menu as i added them through. Managing a class notebook is a rather geeky task now. A clean interface for this would for instance make it possible to delte all students after a schoolyear and reuse the same notebook. Also you then could invite fellow teachers for a periode and remove them easily if they quit their job, get other classes and so on.

    Completed  ·  Rebecca Seerveld responded

    I’m happy to announce that two new capabilities (remove students and co-teachers) have been added to Class Notebooks. This is a direct result of listening to your feedback. You can now remove students from your class. Removed students will not have access to the Notebook but their work will remain. You can now remove co-teachers and they will no longer be able to access the Class Notebook. For more details, please go to https://blogs.office.com/2015/10/05/top-teacher-requested-features-added-to-onenote-class-notebooks/

  19. OneNote Online version does not display equations added with the equation editor using the desktop version. Can this be fixed?

    Inserting an equation using the editor (Alt=) on a note using the desktop version does not display in the online version. Just a box with "equation" appears.

    This is a problem for me as a chemistry teacher. I use the equation editor for chemical formulas.

    Can this be fixed?

  20. 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...
