Using Microsoft Teams + Office

With the new requirements for remote learning, [email protected] has adopted the use of Microsoft Teams, which is included with Microsoft 365 (formally Office 365).

Microsoft Teams is a chat based online learning platform that allows for video and audio calling as well as education class groups and file sharing.

As well as Microsoft Teams, students will need access to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint (Microsoft Office). All students from [email protected] have access to these applications for free so families are not required to pay for these.

For students who are using devices provided by [email protected], these applications are setup and configured automatically.
