Class Teams – Updates to School Data Sync – Important info for Teachers & Students

Class Teams are an excellent way for teachers and students to keep up to date and informed about classes without being restricted to the timetable slot. Available through the Microsoft Teams app on Glow, Class Teams are automatically created by student information from SEEMiS providing an online classroom available automatically. This allows teachers and pupils to share information relevant to the class which can be accessed anywhere and at any time on an internet connected device. Class teams can be used to post info on homework, class materials and keep the conversation going on the subject available for all to take part in.

Class Teams are automatically created for the academic year. Schools who have signed up to use Class teams will see the new classes added and they will include the year of the class i.e. SchoolIdentifier Stage Subject ClassID 17-18. The Teams are created based on the information held by SEEMiS ensuring it is correct and saving teachers time by removing the need to manually create individual classes and manage the membership.

For Teachers and Students already using Class Teams older teams, i.e. anything prior to the 2018/19 academic year, these will be deleted in September/October 2018. It is vital that you save any data from these classes elsewhere before this date if you wish to keep a copy.
