Create a team for classes in Microsoft Teams

Classes are a team with unique permissions for teachers and students. As owners of the team, teachers assign and review work and create channels and files. Each class team is also linked to its own OneNote Class Notebook.

Within the team, students:

  • Collaborate in group work channels

  • Turn in assignments

    Select Create Team
  3. Select Classes as the team.

    Choose a team type
  4. Enter a name for your class.

  5. Enter a description then select Next. For example: Ms. Gustyte, 3rd period, meets in room 301.

    Create new class team
