Introduction to using Microsoft Teams in Teaching and Learning


Microsoft Teams is available for all staff and students at the University. 

It can be used in some teaching and learning situations to complement Blackboard:

Interactive online sessions (e.g. seminars) 
See How to make online interactive sessions available to students for advice on general advice on procedures to follow, and a feature comparison between Teams and Collaborate.


How to request a Team

Use the IT Self Service Portal to Request a new Team.

You can then add

  • any other staff who need to be able to access or manage the Team
  • any students who need to be members of the Team.
