Using Microsoft Teams to Connect With Students and Colleagues During the Shutdown
Micrososft's offerings of cloud-based office software have improved dramatically over recent years, and Microsft Teams might just be a game-changer in the cloud wars. Teams is a collaboration hub and much, much more: it neatly integrates and synchronises pretty much every Office 365 app, be it Word, Forms, Outlook Calendar or Skype, and packages into a very intuitive, attractive, uesful interface. As someone who has been predominantly a Google user over the last decade, I must admit, Teams brings something to Microsft's suite that nobody else, including Google, can match. If you are already in the Microsft ecosystem for work or home use, Teams will bring everything you are already doing into one, easy to use, easy to access place. Below are some short tutorial videos on how to use Teams to connect with students and/or colleagues during this shutdown. I will add more videos as I learn more. Enjoy!!!
