About this Session
Discover how to use Teams meetings for real time sessions by using Together Mode, Spotlight, Polls and Forms to increase engagement. Microsoft Teams Meetings provide the ability to meet synchronously with anyone for real- time engagement and feedback. Everyone can interact through multiple formats. These tools, combined with the built-in meeting functions, provide students with opportunities to connect with both colleagues.

About the Migration
To replace Skype for Business, the District will be migrating to Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams is a collaboration solution built for hybrid work environments. It enables users and their colleagues to stay informed, organized, and connected through a single application. In addition to familiar features provided by Skype for Business, Teams offers several new benefits, including:
- Improved calling and voicemail functionality
- Enhanced chat features, such as rich expressions and threaded conversations
- Seamless document sharing and collaboration
- Increased stability, scalability, and redundancy
The migration from Skype to Teams will occur during the summer. Be on the lookout for additional information coming from your respective college or DO IT team to inform you of the specific migration timing for you and your area.
A series of five Microsoft Teams training sessions will be provided and recorded for future reference. These Teams Reference Materials may also assist in the learning process.
