Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is available to all students and staff as part of Office 365. Teams offers a secure platform for online collaboration where students can share files, chat, hold web conferences and collaborate on documents simultaneously, making Teams an ideal solution for projects and group work.

Instead of your students migrating to a social network such as Facebook or Whatsapp, they can use Teams for online collaboration which means they won’t have to share their personal details with their peers or a third party outside the universities jurisdiction. Microsoft Teams encompasses all the key features of a social platform in a secure location.
