Scanning and Submitting Assignments in Microsoft Teams

One of the necessary tasks when using Microsoft Teams is being able to hand in written work. It is so much easier when one just snap photos and have a single PDF document to upload. Initially I was encouraging students to use Office Lens to scan their work, create a PDF and then attach in the Assignments section. But, I have found that iOS devices and Office Lens do not play well together.

But with some trial and testing, I found that OneDrive's built-in scanning feature (which seems to be a modified Office Lens implementation) works very well with Android and iOS devices. It works exceptionally well, automatically converts what you scan into a PDF format and it's placed in your OneDrive right away.

Our students needed some instruction with the process, so I made the following video to assist them.
