Microsoft Teams is already widely used within the business community to facilitate fast and effective communication and collaboration.
Over the last couple of years, the platform has been extended for the education market, where it is being rapidly adopted. This has included adding dedicated classroom features such as class notebooks, assignments, grade books and class material storage.
Many Jisc members have expressed an interest in exploring the Teams platform as either an additional service to their existing VLE, or as an alternative as many of you use the 365 environment and are already licensed for Teams.
