Exciting New Changes to Microsoft Office 365

On January 22, 2018, Microsoft announced a number of updates for Office 365 Education that will bring many new features over the course of next months. These updates will make Office 365 Education an even more useful tool for both student and teachers.

Major new features include Dictation in Office, improved access to assignments and class collaboration, page locking in OneNote Class Notebook, assignment and grade integrations with leading Learning Management Systems (LMS) and Student Information Systems (SIS), including Capita SIMS in the U.K.

Check the full official changelog and availability details below:

  • Dictation in Office—This simple yet transformational tool will help students of all abilities to write freely by using only their voice. Starting in February, Dictation will be available in Word, Word Online, PowerPoint, Outlook Desktop, OneNote Windows 10, and OneNote Online—and in more than nine languages.
  • Read Aloud—Allows students to hear the contents of an email while each word is highlighted in sync. It will soon be available on Outlook Desktop in more than 30 text-to-speech languages.
  • Immersive Reader—To further support students of different backgrounds, Immersive Reader now supports an additional 10 new languages. It is also coming to even more platforms in 2018 and will soon be available on Word for Mac, iPhone, and Android, as well as Outlook Desktop and OneNote for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Teams integration with PowerPoint and Microsoft Stream

Microsoft’s improvements to class collaboration don’t stop here. Teams have also joined forces with PowerPoint and Microsoft Stream to make it easy for teachers and students to create and share interactive content in just a few steps.

A teacher can use PowerPoint to build immersive class content (that includes ink, animations, and audio/video narrations), add Microsoft Forms–based quizzes, publish it to their Stream channel as a video, and have it surface in their Teams class to distribute to their students.

Furthermore, Stream will also add automatic captioning to the videos to make them accessible to all learners.

And, you don’t have to be a teacher or educator to enjoy some of these latest upgrades to Microsoft Office 365…just take a look:

  • Dictation in Office will begin rolling out in its Office Insider program this month, and then to all Office 365 clients in coming months.
