Educator's guide to Insights in Microsoft Teams
Insights in Microsoft Teams uses at-a-glance data views to help educators track their students’ Teams activity, from assignment turn-in to engagement in class conversations. With spotlighted datapoints and visualizations to keep educators informed on trends in student activity and growth, the Education Insights dashboard is designed to save you time in planning, giving feedback to students, and providing help where needed.
