How to get started on Microsoft Teams for Education

With growing concerns around COVID-19, many schools are closing, or currently reviewing their learning continuity plans. With Microsoft Teams, your students, teachers and staff can stay connected and engaged regardless of where they are, or what device they are using.

Microsoft Teams brings conversations, content, assignments and apps together in one place. As a virtual meeting platform, Teams is designed to enable discussion. Its features allow for easy assignment distribution—no matter where people are located. Teams also helps school administrators and staff stay connected and allows for real-time sharing of announcements.

We’ve got some great resources to help get you started – including a printable quick reference guide, which is a valuable resource to share with your staff, and videos on how to facilitate an online classroom.
