Microsoft Teams for Instructors
The college’s supported remote communication platform is Microsoft Teams.
More information and documentation on Microsoft Teams is located in Faculty Resources on Canvas.
MS Teams and Canvas Integration
MS Teams can now be easily integrated into your Canvas course with MS Integration Sync. Instructors planning to use these options are asked to provide their students with meeting instructions.
The new options are:
- Setting up MS Teams Meetings inside a Canvas Course
This option allows instructors to create a meeting “on the fly” or to schedule a set of meetings for their courses throughout the year.
- Setting up MS Teams Classroom inside a Canvas Course
This option replaces the activation process for using the MS Teams course site (now called Classrooms) that was in place 2020 – 2021.
Syncing Enrollments in Canvas with MS Teams
In order to use MS Teams Meetings or MS Teams Classroom you need to sync your course with Microsoft Sync.
Microsoft Sync allows you to easily sync your enrollments from Canvas over to MS Teams. You can follow these directions that are also located on Faculty Resources on Canvas.
Your enrollments in Canvas will be automatically reflect into MS Teams.
MS Teams Meetings in Canvas
Starting in February 2022, the option to use MS Teams Meetings is now available in every Canvas course.
This option only allows instructors to create meetings on the fly, either through the Rich Content Editor or as its own tab in the course navigation.
More information and demonstration of using MS Teams Meetings
**Please note that you will need to enable the MS Teams Meetings under settings > Navigation (tab) in your canvas course.**
MS Teams Classrooms in Canvas
A link to your MS Teams site can now be directly placed inside of your Canvas course navigation with MS Teams Classroom.
This option creates a MS Teams site called a Classroom. Once activated, it will appear in an instructor’s list of Teams with the course name as listed in Canvas (ex. 2022_SP_HIST-105-01).
Please note that all academic material, assessment, and grading is required on Canvas. Teams should be used primarily as a communication tool.
