Microsoft Teams Help

Due to the COVID-19, or coronavirus, situation, the college has selected Microsoft Teams as a communication and collaboration tool for faculty, students, and staff. Some of your professors will be using Teams to support your now remote learning experience. Some may be using Blackboard, or other distance learning tools for remote learning.  Please watch for communications from each professor about their plans. 
If your professor(s) have communicated that they will be using Microsoft Teams, please watch this short “how-to” video, "Finding Your Way Around Microsoft Teams" to help you get set up with using a Microsoft Teams Classroom space.

Please Note: Microsoft Teams has been rapidly updating their platform to support the increased demand for Microsoft Teams.  They have not updated help videos to reflect some of the updates.  Here are a few things you may notice.   

  • Conversations are now called Posts  
  • Meetings is now called Calendar  
  • Most Teams/Courses are setup so that only the instructor can add a new tab to the top of the channel
