Microsoft Teams is a collaboration tool that gives students, faculty, staff, and external users the ability to work together and share information in a common space. Microsoft Teams combines modern online meeting technology (live document collaboration, audio or video calls, and meetings with fully-featured audio/video conferences) with persistent chat, file storage, and collaboration. Teams works in conjunction with other Microsoft applications such as OneDrive, OneNote, and Office 365. Teams is also integrated with Brightspace.
