New features round-up: Microsoft Teams, OneNote, Sway and Immersive Reader

name of post

It’s getting warm out there – and things at Wakelet are heating up too! We’ve teamed up with Microsoft to bring you a host of hot new features to try this summer

Wakelet x Microsoft OneNote

Did you hear about our #onederful new integration? By popular demand, you can now embed your collections within Microsoft OneNote! Simply paste the link to any public Wakelet collection onto a OneNote page and it will automatically render the entire collection as a live embed. It works on every device imaginable and the possibilities are endless; you could create pages, sections, or even entire notebooks filled with Wakelet collections!   

Wakelet x Microsoft Sway

But what about using Wakelet with Sway? After receiving another request by an educator (and Sway expert), this became the next integration on our must-do list. If you’d like to include a Wakelet collection into your Sway presentation, all you need to do is generate an embed code. Head to Wakelet and click the three dots at the top of your public collections to generate the code and then paste it straight into Sway’s Embed code interface.

Wakelet x Immersive Reader

We’re working on making Wakelet as inclusive and accessible as possible. So, when Microsoft suggested teaming up to bring the Immersive Reader into Wakelet, we jumped at the chance! You can use the Immersive Reader on all of the text in your collections; you can have it read aloud, enlarged, or translated into 68 different languages!  

Wakelet x Microsoft Teams

The final integration we’ve been working this summer – so far – is all about bringing people together. We know that many of you use Microsoft Teams and Wakelet separately every day, so how amazing would it be to be able to use them together? Simply click the Share button on your Wakelet collection and you’ll be able to select the Teams option to add it into straight into a chat or channel.  That way, everyone in your team can enjoy the resources you’ve compiled, the research you’ve collated, or the lesson plans that you’ve created, all in one place.
