Teacher Dashboard is an app for Office 365 Education that lets you easily share files and assignments with your students, and then allows you to grade them and provide feedback. It’s a web-based classroom manager tool for Office 365 that customises your school’s system to support the teaching and learning process, and gives your teachers tools for the most common processes they need to do.
It’s designed to allow your teaching staff to:
- Share a homework assignment to an unlimited number of students with one click.
- Teachers get a high level view, in real-time, of their student’s OneDrives
- Create teacher-defined groups for each subject, ability and year group with just 1 click
- Upload files to your OneDrive and share directly to students through the dashboard.
- Simple multi-class management tools allow teachers to quickly and efficiently assign and track documents between classes
- Mobile device ready – able to be used on all devices including tablets and smartphones
Students can easily submit their assignments online, and Teacher Dashboard creates a folder structure that helps them keep their work organised, and automatically gives teachers the correct access to the correct folders.

Teacher Dashboard is now free for your first 100 teachers
The news that’s just been announced by Axis12, the developers of Teacher Dashboard, is that it is now free for schools to use with up to 100 teachers (after that, there’s a subscription fee for additional licences).
The team have also added a bulk importer, to allow you to import classes directly from your school’s SMS/SIS system.
How to download Teacher Dashboard
Teacher Dashboard is available through Microsoft’s Office Online store – installing it on your Office 365 tenant is something that your school’s site administrator does – and there’s a simple 3-step process to install it. Once that’s done, it’s then available to all the teachers to start using.
