Classwork Modules are used to organize class content in Microsoft Teams for Education. Modules have titles and descriptions, and contain resources such as Assignments, Files, Links, and more. Modules can be published and pinned to manage visibility to students.


  • Classwork is only available in Class Teams.

  • Up to 48 modules can be added per Class Team.

Create a new module 

  1. Navigate to the desired Class Team, then select Classwork.


2. Select the Add Module button, located in the bottom left corner. 
add module

3. Enter a title. A description is optional for creating a module; you can add one in the space provided.


Finish by choosing the Save button. Your module will be saved as a draft. 

Note: Draft modules are only visible to Team owners (teachers) until published. All new modules are created in draft state.

Reuse a module

Modules can be reused in Class Teams, including their resources. Reusing a module will copy the module and its resources into the desired Class Team.

1. Navigate to the Class Team you want to copy modules into, then select Classwork

2. Select Add module > Reuse from existing.

3. Choose the class where you originally created the module and select Next

choose a class

4. Choose the module(s) you'd like to re-use and select Reuse module(s).


5.  The modules and resources within will be recreated in the Team you are currently in. The modules created through reuse will have a  Copied icon.



  • All modules and assignments created will be as drafts (not visible to students). 

  • The order of modules and resources within a module is not kept during reuse. 

  • Channel resources are only copied when the destination Class Team has matching channel names present, and no channel content (files, tabs, or conversations) will be copied. To ensure channels are copied, go to the destination team and create matching channels before starting Classwork reuse.

  • To reuse module(s) with Class Notebook resources:

  • The Class Notebook in the destination team must be set up. If it is not, you will be prompted to set it up and try again.

  • Any Class Notebook page resources will be replaced in Classwork by a section resource of the section they are in (and that entire section will be copied to the destination Class Notebook).

  • No Class Notebook content will be overwritten: If a section with the same name already exists in the destination Class Notebook, that existing section will be used in the Module instead of copying from the source. This means that content in the source may differ from the destination.

  • If a section to be copied is in a section group that does not exist in the destination, an empty section group will be created and the section will be copied into it. Any other sections in the group will not be copied (unless they are also present as resources in the module).

Publish a module 

Publishing a module will make it (and all resources within) visible to all students in the Class Team. 

  1. Navigate to the desired Class Team, then select Classwork.

  2. Navigate to the desired module, then select Publish.

    • Publishing a module is not reversible (although a module can be deleted after being published).

    • Any draft or scheduled assignments within the module will not be visible to students until they are manually assigned (or upon the scheduled date).
