COVID-19 has impacted the lives of people around the world. Many schools around the world are making the difficult decision to temporarily close for the health and safety of students, educators, and staff. Given this, Victorian schools are looking for ways to keep students engaged and learning. As a virtual meeting platform, Teams is designed to enable discussion, and its features allow for easy assignment distribution—no matter where people are located. Teams also helps school administrators and staff stay connected and allows for real-time sharing of announcements.
Teams can facilitate synchronous and asynchronous learning. You can create Teams for classes and then chat, post messages and files, and video chat from any device. You can schedule online meetings or start an instant meeting, @mention students or teachers to get their attention, post announcements, and meet online with your class for a lesson where you can share your screen or even collaborate in the Whiteboard or OneNote.
