Microsoft Classroom was an online blended learning platform for schools that aims to simplify grading assignments and student communication in a paperless way.[1][2] It was introduced for Office 365 Education subscribers in April 2016.[3]

On 18 May 2017 Microsoft announced the retirement of Microsoft Classroom, which was completed on 31 January 2018. Some features of Microsoft Classroom became part of Microsoft Teams in Office 365 Education.[4]
