Using Teams with Low Bandwidth
Bandwidth refers to the maximum data transfer rate of an internet connection. Having low internet bandwidth can result in a degraded Teams experience, especially when participating and collaborating in online meetings. Fortunately, Teams settings can be configured to help in these situations.
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.
