I am pleased to announce that we have now added support for this new functionality to Salamander Active Directory and Salamander SharePoint. This includes:

  • Teacher only content spaces. These can be added to existing as well as to new class Notebooks.
  • Deletion of notebooks, sections and pages.
  • Adding section groups, sections and pages.
  • Copying sections and pages from other notebooks.
  • Permissions. The ability to set permissions on notebooks, sections and section groups. These can range from allowing anyone to edit, through read only, to not even being able to see it is there.
  • Option to send or not send the Welcome Email message when creating class notebooks.
  • Create class notebooks in languages other then English.
    If you want any of this functionality adding to your current set up please email support@salamandersoft.co.uk.

OneNote Class Notebook Creation With Salamander Active Directory and SharePoint

onenoteIconOneNote Class Notebooks have been a hit in Office 365 for Education and are being heavily promoted by Microsoft. They have a personal workspace for every student, a content library for hand-outs, and a collaboration space for lessons and creative activities.

Microsoft have just announced the launch of the new OneNote Class Notebook API for Office 365. I’m pleased to announce that we have also added support for creating and maintaining Class Notebooks to Salamander Active Directory and Salamander SharePoint.

This means that we can automate the creation of Class Notebooks directory from your MIS, whether it’s SIMs, Facility, iSAMS, Pass or any other MIS. It will also add and remove students and teachers as the membership changes in the MIS.

This allows central provisioning and rollout of Class Notebooks with no manual intervention required by teachers – they can just get on with teaching.

We can create the Notebooks in several different locations:

  1. In the Teachers’ OneDrives.
  2. In SharePoint sites. Ideal if using class sites.
  3. Within the new Office 365 Groups.
  4. In a shared OneDrive.

This is all completely configurable, as are all our products, so we can configure it to whatever works best for your school. We can even automatically archive the Notebooks at the end of the year, before building a new set for the new academic year.
