What is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is a software application that can be used to communicate and collaborate with others on a shared project, or to create a shared workspace. It is particularly useful for students who are working together on group assignments, or on other learning activities that require a significant amount of communication and collaboration.
Teaching and learning applications
Students can create their own teams for project work, or teams can be created by staff.
Microsoft Teams is also integrated with the LMS; a meeting link can be added to a subject or community, allowing all students and staff to join a video meeting. This meeting link could be used for scheduled events or small consultations as an alternative or backup to Zoom for video conferencing.
Access and licensing
All University of Melbourne staff and students have access to Microsoft Teams through their Microsoft 365 University account.
Microsoft Teams is available as a desktop app, a mobile app, and online through a web browser.
