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.
