About Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is built around the idea of making it easy to collaborate with anyone at the institution, whether it is in one to one situations or as part of a team. Microsoft Teams provides collaboration tools such as chat, team chat, file sharing, phone calls, video calls, and screen sharing.
Downloading/Accessing Microsoft Teams
There are three ways to use Teams,
- Use the desktop client (preferred method). You can download Teams at https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-teams/download-app
- Install "Teams" on your mobile phone from the Apple or Android App Store or at https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-teams/download-app
- Access the web version of Microsoft Teaams via Office 365 (https://ursinus.okta.com or https://teams.microsoft.com).
The advantage of using the desktop app and the mobile app jointly is that you will always have access to communications going on around you
