If your course instructor has chosen to offer a lecture, class meeting, or seminar group via Teams, there are several methods of connecting. Such methods include accessing a meeting from a channel in your class Teams site, accessing a meeting through your Teams calendar, or accessing a meeting through your Outlook Calendar.

Join a Teams Class Meeting via Teams Class Site

Access Teams through your Internet browser, or open your Microsoft Teams desktop app. More information about how to access Teams through your Internet browser is available in the Where is Teams? page.

Click upon your class

Now that you've logged into Teams, you should see the title of your course. Clicking upon it will allow you to enter your class' Team space.
