Training Opportunities

The TLT Center offers classes and events for all members of the University community.

What is Microsoft Teams

Faculty have the ability to create an interactive online classroom with Microsoft Teams. Teams supports group conversations, video conferencing (up to 49 screens), virtual breakout rooms and the ability to chat and share files. A team is automatically created for all courses. New to Microsoft Teams? View the Quick Guide (PDF)

In a Teams HyFlex classroom, instructors start the class session from either a Microsoft Teams wall panel in the room or with their laptop. Those in the room immediately see and hear students joining remotely. If a presentation or other content is required, the instructor uses Teams on her/his laptop and shares the material, thereby pushing the content to the display in the physical room and to all remote participants screens simultaneously. Students are also able to share their screens/content with the entire class via Teams. View a detailed description of the HyFlex classroom technology.

The Microsoft Teams software may be accessed via the web, desktop versions for Windows and Apple Macintosh platforms, as well as Apple and Android mobile devices.
