What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps your team stay organized and have conversations—all in one place. Here's a quick look at the left-hand side of Teams.

Teams - Find channels to belong to or create your own. Inside channels you can hold on-the-spot meetings, have conversations, and share files.

Meetings - See everything you’ve got lined up for the day or week. Or, schedule a meeting. This calendar syncs with your Outlook calendar.

Calls - In some cases, if your organization has it set up, you can call anyone from Teams, even if they’re not using Teams.

A team can be created for your course site by contacting edtech@brocku.ca. The Team will include your course roster but you can add additional members such as TAs as well.
