Teams is a college-supported platform for connecting synchronously among staff and faculty and with students. It is Microsoft’s Skype for Business replacement, which will go away on July 31st, 2021. The Teams app is available for download in MacOs, Windows, Android, and iOS. Teams allows you to schedule meetings which are open to the Bryn Mawr community and to other invitees. During meetings, you can share your presentation, use the chat feature for text-based conversation, and have participants start one-on-one and small group chats with each other. Faculty can use Teams as an alternative to Zoom to deliver synchronous lectures during scheduled class meeting time.
