What is it?

Microsoft Teams is a chat and collaboration-based platform designed to simplify group work to bring together people, conversations and content in a workspace.  Teams is naturally integrated with Office 365, which provides Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, etc.) as well as cloud storage and sharing services such as SharePoint, PowerPoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI and Delve. Any documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc. that are shared within a team are synced with a copy stored in SharePoint Online so every Team member has access to the latest version.  

Access to files, internal sites and dashboards is automatically controlled by Office 365 Groups and SharePoint, with users able to create a new Group or attach the Team to an existing Group when creating the Team.

Where to get it?

Microsoft Teams can be used from a web browser, or from an app on your computer or mobile device. This service is available to any active faculty, staff or student.  Outside guests can also be added to existing Teams.
