Microsoft Teams logo

Does your class need a space for group chats, file storage, and quick group video calls? You may want to check out Microsoft Teams. With Teams, you can create channels for specific groups in your class Team to work. These groups can be private to only team members or can be accessible to the entire class. 

Additional features within Teams: 

  • Control access to files with the entire class or specific groups 
  • Create, share, and collaborate in Word, PowerPoint, or Excel without leaving Teams 
  • Engage in group conversations with video calls 

We have multiple ways for you to learn about Teams:  

If you would like a consultation on using Teams in your class, submit a request through the OIT HelpDesk Training online portal or by phone at 865-974-9900.
