Collaboration Tools: Microsoft Teams - Fast Track (Live Online using MS Teams)

Fri 7 May 2021


Want an insight into Teams? Then join us in this friendly, fast-paced, session to learn how to get up and running. This course would suit people that are comfortable using computers and who would be confident referring to the course materials after the session to consolidate the detail.

However, if you would prefer a more in depth and slower paced course with more opportunity for practice then attend Teams Parts 1 - 4 instead (see Related courses below).

Please note that the course is taught using Microsoft Teams and you must have Teams installed on your computer to participate.

You will:

  • Understand Teams, channels and gain an overview of what is possible in the application.

In Teams you can:

  • video/audio chat or message colleagues one-to-one or in a group
  • arrange and attend meetings
  • collaborate in real time with colleagues - access, share, and edit Word docs, PowerPoint, and Excel files
  • add applications that you need to work with e.g. OneNote, Planner, Forms/surveys.

If you book:

  • Add the event to your calendar by following the link in your booking confirmation email and click Add to Calendar.
  • Install the Microsoft Teams app. (It is possible to join using Edge or Chrome but there is less functionality when using a browser).
  • Important: The instructor cannot troubleshoot access to Microsoft Teams on the day of the course. If you are in an institution that is managing their own Teams tenancy (CAMENT, JBS, medschl and some of the colleges) then you may not have access to the files or calendar used in the course. Please contact the instructor in advance to discuss this.
  • If you are using Hermes for your email you will not be able to access the Teams calendar used in the course.
  • It's advisable to make a test call in advance of the session.
  • The course will start promptly at the time shown but will be open up to 30 minutes beforehand should you wish to check your audio and visual setup or meet your instructor.
Target audience
  • For University and college members
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
