Teams for Education Quick Start Guide

Microsoft have produced Quick Start guidance to introduce you to using Teams for the education sector.

Creating a "Class" Team provides special capabilities tailored for teaching and learning, including making sure that students join meetings as "Attendees" which limits what they can do in a meeting, amongst other things.

Microsoft Educator Centre

There are a wide range of resources available from the Microsoft Educator Centre. They include blogs, courses, learning paths, educator resources and lesson plans.

Why are we implementing it at the university?

Implementing Office 365 is a key component in delivering the university's Digital Strategy to help the university deliver its mission, vision and strategy.

The Digital Strategy is aligned to the Strategic Plan through four parallel themes, all of which focus on people and experiences. Some of its driving principles underpinning these themes are simplifying processes, providing a consistent look and feel across all platforms, considering Information Security at all times, and working as part of One University to ensure the delivery of consistent and efficient services supporting all areas of university life.
