More about Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is software that enables you and your team to work together remotely by giving you a collaboration platform to work within. With Teams you can:
- Host meetings with your colleagues and classmates
- Use chat to message each other
- Collaborate on documents in real-time together
- Store your shared files
- Use tools like Microsoft Planner to help everyone keep on track of team tasks.
Teams was rolled out at Strathclyde in October 2020. Here are some of the case studies showing how Strathclyde people have been using it so far:
- Bringing people together in HaSS
- Working with external partners in PNDC
- Working with pupils in schools in Widening Access
- Moving away from email in Science
You can find other case studies on the Cloud Transformation SharePoint site, including how Strathclyde is adopting some of the more advanced tools in the Microsoft 365 toolkit, like Power Automate.
