What is Teacher Dashboard?

Teacher Dashboard is a web based tool that has been designed to complement Office365 and allow teachers to get the most out of their school's Microsoft Office 365 and Sharepoint environments. With Teacher Dashboard it is child's play to monitor and manage student OneDrive files and folders individually or en masse; distribute/collect/mark assignments and see an aggregated real-time view of their OneDrive folders organised by class, or by groups within or across classes.

Teacher Dashboard doesn't change your underlying Office365 or Sharepoint instance in any way - it adds a layer over the top to allow teachers to easily and more efficiently manage their students' work. It is deployed as a Sharepoint application on your tenant and so is fully synchronised with your Sharepoint data. This integration means install (or removal) is a breeze and switching between your Office 365 applications and Teacher Dashboard is seamless.

We work closely with Microsoft to continually improve integration with their other products and are in constant contact with Teachers who use the product so we can respond to requests for new features.

Easy to use

Upload files directly to OneDrive. Upload one or more files from your local PC to your OneDrive without leaving the Dashboard. Copy your files into existing student folders or create new folders on-the-fly. Share with an individual student, a custom defined group of students, an entire class or the whole school. During the sharing process, a “completed” folder is created for students to place their completed assignment files into.

Group management. An intuitive interface to add students to classes and groups. Easily create as many custom groups as you need. No need to wait on your IT department to create the custom group you need, you have complete control of how you organise your students.
