Microsoft Teams is a digital hub that brings conversations, content, and apps together in one place. Students can collaborate in class and connect with classmates, ask the instructor questions, work on homework, and track upcoming work. Access the Office 365 suite of apps available, including Teams and Stream at the Office 365 portal login.
Using Microsoft 365 Groups, Teams and Streams for Coursesrelationship between Blackboard courses, Office 365 groups, Microsoft Stream and Microsoft Teams with a focus on how to use these tools for use in your UWindsor course.
ITS maintains a Knowledge Base article on Teams with relevant links to specific articles. Current topics linking from the Knowledge Base article include Conversion of Office 365 Groups into Microsoft Teams, Guest access in Microsoft Teams, Installing Microsoft the Teams App, the Microsoft Teams - Team Owner’s Guide, and Using Microsoft Teams for a Student Project or Ad-Hoc Chat.
We now have an integration with Blackboard so a class list, instructors and support staff for a course site will have an automatic Team created, however, instructors need to activate the Team. To get started, instructors will need to follow the process outlined in the getting started by adding a team from your class list video.
Once you have your team created and populated with your Blackboard class list, it will automatically update the list daily. You can add a weblink to your Blackboard course site to direct your students to their Team. Note, it is recommended that you advise your students to install the Teams application on their computer for best results.
