Teams is a Microsoft communication and collaboration tool, combining video meetings, chat, file storage, and integration with Word, Office, Powerpoint, OneDrive, OneNote, Box, and more. Teams can be used in a number of ways, including as a collaboration tool for students working on team projects.
Some faculty have inquired about an alternative to Zoom for synchronous meetings with students. While Teams does not have all the features of Zoom, it can be considered as an alternative. See our Video conferencing tool comparison for more details.
