Microsoft today announced several updates across OneNote Class Notebook and Learning Tools based on the feedback from teachers around the world.

OneNote Class Notebook Tools are now available for OneNote Online and OneNote for Windows 10 to help teachers work even more efficiently across more platforms.

  • Distribute a page or section to your students—Rather than sending students to the Content Library to copy a page for themselves, teachers can distribute a page to all students in a class with just two clicks.
  • Review student work sequentially—Just like in the Class Notebook add-in for OneNote 2013 or 2016, teachers are provided with a list of all the pages they’ve distributed and a quick way to sequentially review work (homework, assignments, quizzes, etc.). Simply click a student’s name to navigate to the page in the student’s notebook.
  • OneNote Online is rolling out today to Office 365 Education customers, with the OneNote for Windows 10 update available in the coming days in the Windows Store, and you will be able to download the OneNote Windows 10 app and enable the feature through settings in the Options menu.

The Learning Tools user interface is now localized in six new languages: Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese (Simplified) and Chinese (Traditional). And it supports Russian, Portuguese (Brazil) and Chinese as dictation languages.

Microsoft has now added the ability for teachers to give students stickers in OneNote along with a personalized message. Microsoft is planning to release new stickers packs throughout 2017. Stickers are available today in the OneNote Online app and will be available in the coming weeks for the OneNote Class Notebook add-in for desktop (2013 or 2016) and Windows 10 app.

Microsoft today announced support for a new set of partners to embed content onto the OneNote canvas including:

Microsoft is also planning to launch new assignment and grade support for the Skooler LMS in the next update of the Class Notebook add-in for OneNote desktop.
