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 materials to their own OneNote class notebooks. However, I have to tell them over and over again how to do it. What I miss is a possibility to send a page directly to all my students, so it would automatically appear in their class notebooks and they would not have to copy the pages by themselves. Our OneNote Class Notebooks experience would be so more interactive if I could just send those pages to all the students that are members of a particular OneNote class.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

We are pleased to let you know that this feature is now available in the new Class Notebook Addin. Thank you for all your comments and feedback in helping us make OneNote better for everyone to use. Please read our blog for more information.: https://blogs.office.com/2016/03/08/introducing-the-class-notebook-add-in-for-onenote-designed-and-built-with-teachers/
I agree too...kids have a hard time copying and pasting from the content library to their notebooks.. Please find a better way to do this.
At the BETT exhibition in London in January (2016), I heard a speech by One Note specialists. They said that an add-on/ update was nearly ready to fix this very problem!! I hope it comes out soon. I have only just started using Class Notebooks and already I am fed up of spending the first 10 minutes of the lesson copying and pasting! Then you get some kids who can do it really quickly but then others who can't do it without help. So the beginning of the lesson is disrupted while you sort it. Please One Note developers..... Please send this add-on/ update out soon!!
My school has moved from Google to Office 365. We were told - by the Microsoft salesperson - that the functionality of 365 was the same as Google. This is a clear example of where it is'nt. Online quizzes seem lacking too. I wish we had stayed with Google when I see these sorts of forums being ignored by Microsoft. Please add this feature.

I've been using OneNote Class Notebooks for about a year now. When I talk to other teachers about it, they consistently ask if they can send the pages to the students.
This feature would make it easier for younger students and more appealing to many teachers.

This would CHANGE MY LIFE. The hardest part for my students seems to be copying and pasting from the content area over to their notebook.

Google Classroom lets you do this - let's get OneNote to do this!
