How do I start using Teams?

  • Meeting Scheduler- This will be used more like a traditional Bluejeans or Zoom call. You will be able to send a link to your students, or post a link in your Moodle page that takes them directly to the video chat. It is better than the other services because your students will be using it for their other classes too, meaning less programs to keep up with, and secondly you also have a text chat that where you can share documents that will stay there after the call. 

  • Teams Site- This is your own private group of chats. You will have a group channel with all of your students and yourself. You can also make permanent chats with specific groups of students e.g. group projects. In these channels you can video call at any time, chat within the messenger, and share documents. 

First you must decide how you would like to go about using teams within your classes.

**There isn't a standout downside to this option, you will just have slightly less freedom of features (which in almost all cases won't be harming anything.)**

**The main downside to this is you will have to add each of your students, 1 at a time, and it will not connect to Moodle, so you will have to keep up to date with the class roster making sure all students currently registered have access.**
