Virtual Team Meeting

WHAT IS TEAMS?

Microsoft Teams is a tool that is used for chat, virtual meetings, file sharing and collaboration.  It integrates with Office 365 and provides users multiple ways of accessing it including Windows, MacOS, iPad, iPhone, Android, and a website.

WHY TEAMS FOR STUDENTS?

There are many collaboration tools available to ESU students--and none of them are a one-stop solution.  We use Zoom in the classroom, but to host meetings a license is required.  Google Meet is part of our GSuite for students setup, but there are limitations that also require a license to overcome.  Microsoft Teams is part of our Office 365 package, so we've made it available to students, along with employees.

QUICK START GUIDE

GET THE SOFTWARE

Get Microsoft Teams for your device.  Browse to the Microsoft downloads page.  It will automatically give you the appropriate download for your device.

LOG IN TO TEAMS

When you start Teams for the first time, you'll be asked log in.  Here's where most users enter the wrong info.

Always use yourusername@emporia.edu

Yes, even if you don't have an @emporia.edu email account!  Your password is your same ESU password.

USING TEAMS

CHAT

You can chat with an individual or make your own team simply by adding users to the conversation.

It's easy and best of all Teams keeps your chat history from the beginning.

MEET

Like chatting, you can add an individual user or multiple users to a conversation and with one click start a video call.  And if you have a SharePoint Group set up, you can start a meeting and your members will be alerted to join!

GROUPS

While you can create your own team right inside Teams simply by adding members to a discussion, you can also request an ongoing, static, pre-populated SharePoint Group for Students.

 

COLLABORATE

Need to share a file?  Show a PowerPoint?  It's easy right within Teams.  And if you are an organization with a SharePoint Group, you can access all your shared files via the web.
