What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams (also known as MS Teams) is an Office 365 collaboration app that helps your team stay organised and have conversations all in one place. MS Teams supports collaboration across our staff and student community. Team members can collaborate via conversations, sharing content, meetings and much more.

You can use MS Teams online meeting tool that you can use for web conferencing with your students. You do not need a MS Teams site setting up in order to use this with your students. Our guide to choosing an online meeting tool provides more information about the different options supported at the University.
