This is the first audio recording version for iOS devices. Microsoft will be adding more features in its next upcoming update.

Teachers can give quick audio feedback to students—directly in their Class Notebook. We’re excited about our first version of audio recording for iOS, but have plenty of additional features we plan to add.”
The new update allows the users to add any file to the page by using file attachment. You simply need to click on Insert File Attachment and select the file that you want to attach. This is an added advantage for students as well as teachers, as all the materials will be in one place.
