Reviewing Non-Microsoft Files or Students' Assignments Without Internet https://office365.vsb.bc.ca/accessing-students-assignments-without-internetReviewing Non-Microsoft Files or Students' Assignments Without Internet AdvancedTeams;SharePoint<h2>​​​​​​Before You Start<br></h2><p>With the integration of assignment functionalities in <a href="/Pages/VSB-Teams-Classroom-Creation-App-For-Teachers.aspx" target="_blank">Teams Classroom</a>, it makes assignment submission and organization of students' submitted work more manageable for teachers. While <strong>teachers should always be reviewing assignments and entering feedback via the Assignments tab of the Teams Classroom using the Teams app</strong> with internet connection, there might be unique scenarios where teachers are on the go and don't have access to internet (ex. Ferry rides to the island, long layovers for flights, etc.) or receive non-Microsoft assignment formats that don't open natively in the browser (ex. Design files, drafting files, video files, etc.). To be able to review non-Microsoft files or assignments without internet, teachers <strong>must</strong> <strong>first</strong> <strong>sync </strong><strong>the </strong><strong>Submitted Work</strong> of students onto their work computer <strong>while internet is still available</strong>. Submitted Work are the files that students have "turned in".<br><br></p><h2>Very Important Considerations<br></h2><p>While below instruction is a workaround solution, most teachers likely don't need to go and sync every Teams Classroom they have, because it takes up storage space on your devices and requires a very clear understanding of how sync works. <em>Microsoft possibly could be making batch assignment download easier in the future.​</em><br></p><p> <span class="ms-rteForeColor-1"> <strong>It is ASSUMED that:</strong></span></p><p>You are very familiar with<br></p><ul><li>​<a href="/Pages/Sync-OneDrive-to-your-devices.aspx" target="_blank" style="font-size:1em;background-color:#ffffff;">How to Sync OneDrive to Your Personal Devices</a></li><li><div> <span style="font-size:1em;"><a href="/Pages/5-tips-on-syncing-OneDrive-to-devices.aspx" target="_blank">5 Tips on Syncing OneDrive to Devices​​ - </a>​<em>Pay attention to Tip #2 around File Status and Files On-Demand </em></span></div></li></ul><div> <span class="ms-rteForeColor-1"> <strong>AND the following criteria are also met:</strong></span><br></div><div><p></p><p></p><ul><li>No late turn-in is allowed on the assignment after due date*​</li><li>Sync is done after the assignment is due, with internet still being available<br></li><li>Reviewing​ occurs after the assignment due date - by review, it's defined as using the comment or markups<br></li><li> <span style="font-size:1em;">​</span><span style="font-size:1em;">Comments/feedback are written up inside the submitted files​</span></li><li>For the assignment to be reviewed, you have not "return" the students' turned in via the Teams app previously</li><li>You can only <strong>edit the assignment files</strong> in their current location - DO NOT ADD, MOVE OR DELETE FILES<br><br></li></ul><p></p><p></p></div><div><h2>First sync the Submitted Work of students<br></h2><p>The <strong>below sync steps only need to be done once</strong>, you don't have to do this for assignments​ thereafter.​<br></p><p></p><ol><li> <a href="https://login.microsoftonline.com/">​Log into Office 365​</a> on your work computer while internet is available<br></li><li> <strong style="font-size:1em;">Search for your Teams Classroom </strong>in the search bar​ and filter by the Sites tab<br><br><img src="/PublishingImages/Pages/Reviewing-Students%27-Assignments-Without-Internet/serach-for-site.png" class="ms-rteImage-1" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:767px;" /><br></li><li> Click on the <strong>Site contents</strong> and Navigate to the <strong>"</strong><strong>Student Work" document library</strong> <br><br><img src="/PublishingImages/Pages/Reviewing-Students%27-Assignments-Without-Internet/navigate-to-student-work.png" alt="navigate-to-student-work.png" class="ms-rteImage-1" style="margin:5px;" /><br></li><li>Once you are in the <strong>Submitted files</strong> folder, click <strong>Sync </strong><br><br><img src="/PublishingImages/Pages/Reviewing-Students%27-Assignments-Without-Internet/sync-student-work.png" alt="sync-student-work.png" class="ms-rteImage-1" style="font-size:1em;margin:5px;" /></li><li>Open up <strong>File Explorer</strong> (or Finder on a Mac) on your work computer and note the <strong>newly synced folder</strong> under the label <strong>"Board of Education SD 39 (Vancouver)"</strong>.
