Use Skype meetings within Teams to connect with students or staff virtually. Create meetings that the whole class team can join or call smaller groups or individuals.
Connect with the whole class team
Anyone from your class team can join a team meeting. Team meetings include audio, video, and screen sharing options.
To begin a meeting, start a new conversation in a channel and then select the Camera icon. Class team members will be notified to join the call from the appropriate channel.
You can also begin a meeting from an existing conversation by selecting the Camera icon.
Schedule a team meeting for later
Set a time and date for a future whole class meeting by selecting the Cameraicon and then Schedulea meeting. From there, select the details of your meeting and schedule.
Connect with individual students or small groups
To connect via audio or video with one student or a group of students, meet within a private chat. This means that the rest of the class team will not be able to join or see the meeting.
Select the Notepad icon to start a new chat and type in the students’ names you’re inviting to join. Then, select the Camera or Phone icons to begin a video or audio call.
To schedule a meeting for later with one or more students, select Meetings, then Schedule a meeting. Type in the students you want to invite, set details, and then schedule.
