With the back-to-school season just around the corner, school and university administrators, educators, parents, and students are preparing for another challenging year. The August release of Dynamics 365 education accelerator includes updated data model and sample apps that can help partner ISVs continue to build and deliver solutions for schools and universities.
In addition, the K-12 portal, an information hub built on Microsoft Power Apps, has been redesigned to make it easier for parents and students to track school activities and assignments. Plus, the release includes a data model aligned with Microsoft School Data Sync (SDS), an application offered with Microsoft 365 Education.
With the August release of Dynamics 365 education accelerator, partners can leverage Dynamics 365 Marketing to bring the power of personalized communication and campaigns to education customers around the world. Partners will help customers enable targeted communication, direct customer journey, and ensure ongoing engagement with their institution.
This capability can be used to build campaigns for a variety of school events, including back-to-school orientation, family night, or school tours. Schools and universities can create events where participants can register and communicate with the institution, and schools can view attendance. Best of all, this capability is completely flexible for partners to customize.
The K-12 student portal has received a design uplift to improve user experience.
School Data Sync (SDS), an offer from Microsoft 365 Education, reads rosters from most Student Information Systems (SIS) and creates classes and groups in Microsoft Teams, Intune for Education, and third-party applications.
By aligning the data model between the education accelerator and SDS, we will enable the possibility for customers already using SDS to leverage the powers ofDataverse, the Common Data Model for Education, and Power Platform.This is transformational from how data was gathered before and allows partners to build specific connectors for their customers.
Eduphoric is one such partner, and we are excited to see how customers will benefit from this work. According to Pamela Knott, Eduphoric's director of education technology, harnessing the advantages of the Power platform help " educators to support more students, more effectively in less time." Knott says Eduphoric's Learning Team solution " aggregates attendance, behavior, course performance, wellness, and tech readiness data into one holistic student profile so that teachers, counselors, administrators and support specialists can identify struggling students and work together to get them back om track."
Microsoft's partners who have seen a sneak peek are excited about the power and flexibility the August release provides:
