Microsoft Teams

He Microsoft team announced many new features for the educational version of Teams that will be implemented in the coming months.

They have taken into account the needs of teachers and students to add functions that contribute to online learning in different contexts.

For example, all participants in video calls can choose different views depending on the type of meeting: gallery, dynamic view or together. On the other hand, Teams will also allow teachers to divide students into smaller groups from one main room.

And to this dynamic are added some options designed to work collaboratively in real time with students, as well as functions to manage pending assignments. A series of controls for teachers in different facets of online teaching will also be added.

For example, during the meeting they will have more control over who and when they join the class. There will be more specific functions to control different details of the meetings to prevent students from causing riots. And once the video call is finished, they can download a support report to verify all the details.

Microsoft also announced that it will increase meeting capacity to 1,000 participants, and up to 20,000 in attendee mode. Other novelties revolve around the activities of the professions in relation to assignments, evaluations and team building. You will find a number of new functions and dynamics that will simplify these processes.

All of these features will begin rolling out at different times during the rest of the year, according to the roadmap shared by Microsoft.
