Using Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a collaborative workspace, which allows you to share files, assign tasks, schedule meetings, and communicate seamlessly - it works for both teacher-to-teacher (T2T) and teacher-to-student (T2S).  This Office 365 application can be accessed on the web, from the desktop, or on mobile devices.

When in a Team, tutors can add others to begin collaborating and planning for upcoming projects, events or to create a centralised location for communicating to a group.
