Students now have access to Teams


You can now use Teams to work with and support students - you can add students to a Teams site, and they can create their own. A new ‘Teams Launch Support Team’ has been created to help staff and students experiment and ask questions you have.

Teams is a great tool and can enhance how we support and collaborate with our students. However, it has a lot of features and it can be difficult to identify the best one to help you achieve your goal. Our Remote Working webpages have been updated to include information on Teams and the IT Service Desk will continue to support you with technical enquiries as usual.

We have also created the Teams Launch Support Team, to help staff and students experiment with and ask questions about features in Microsoft Teams.  This is supported by Information & Library Services (ILS) and Greenwich Learning & Teaching (GLT) and is in addition to the GLT Teams sites which provide guidance to staff Supporting Learners Online.

Teams is not a replacement for our Virtual Learning Environment

While Teams does include overlap features with our existing systems, teaching should continue to be delivered via Moodle and Panopto. Teams is an additional resource for you to use for small group activity and other student-staff or student-student interactions.

Information security

Please follow our Information Security and Information Compliance policies and procedures so that the information you store and share with students within Teams adheres to GDPR and data privacy regulations.

Please take extra care when setting up and managing membership of Teams so not to accidentally add students; adding students to Teams containing sensitive data would be considered a data breach.
