MS Teams

For collaborative projects and teamwork, MS Teams can be a useful platform for teaching and file sharing. It also includes a videoconferencing tool which can be used for synchronous meetings. You will need to set up a Team and invite your class into it in order to connect with them. To access Teams, sign into your Windows 365 account. 

This tour of Teams for the Classroom  will give you an overview of how it works.
