Microsoft Teams for Fall 2020 Classes

Before diving into tutorials about how Teams classes, office hours, etc can be setup and managed by faculty members, it’s important to ask yourself one question:

Do I need my students to break off into groups
(during class time) where they will be having separate
group discussions and I want to be able to jump
from group to group to participate in those discussions?

The answer to this question (posed more simply as “do we need breakout groups?”) will guide which videos you should watch below…

No – I just want a “standard” Teams meeting for synchronous class sessions or office hours

In this configuration you as the instructor will be able to setup as many meetings as you want (or one meeting with a recurrence pattern) and you, as well as optionally the students, will be able to:

  • see up to 49 people at once (Teams sessions have a capacity of 300 people, but now you can actually see up to 49 at a time)
  • present content from your computer
  • record the “meetings” for later placement on Moodle
  • allow students to make class presentations
