Based on the feedback from the community, Microsoft yesterday announced some new features that are coming to the Microsoft Educator Community. They have now simplified sign-in process, improved navigation toolbar, and a revised Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Certified Badge, in addition to other useful features. Find the full list of new features below.
- The sign-in process now has significantly fewer required fields to ensure quick, easy registration. In addition, fields will automatically populate with the user’s First/Given Name, Last/Family Name and Country/Region as provided by the authentication process.
- For returning users, the Sign In pop-up primarily displays the authentication method used to access the site previously, making signing back in a breeze.
- We’ve introduced a new “MIE Certified” Badge to replace the existing “MIE” badge, which users can now earn upon reaching 1,000 points in the Educator Community.
- You can now easily see how many points you have earned, and where you earned those point.
- We’ve introduced more a cleaner, more intuitive profile navigation dropdown so features are more organized and easier to find.
- Additional 16 badges available to be earned. These include badges related to products like Sway, OneNote, and Office Mix—how many have you collected?
