How To

Basic Tasks

Use Chat

Use Teams channels

Use Assignments (for course-based Teams only)

Note: Teams for Classroom works well to promote collaboration and interaction among students, but it is not a Learning Management System. The best way to use Teams is as a supplement to Blackboard Learn.

Use Calendar to schedule meetings and live events

Need OIT's help thinking through how to run an online meeting or live stream, including using a camera and/or microphone?  Schedule a Microsoft Teams consultation.

Collaborate on Files

Use Tabs in channels and chats

Using Planner in Teams

Planner is a lightweight project management tool that you and members of your Team can use to create, assign, and organize tasks to collaborate on.
