MS Teams is a platform that divides students into teams including private channels. Teachers can schedule and record meetings where they share screens, take notes and create breakout rooms. After ending meetings, MS Teams creates attendance reports. Teachers can also create assignments or quizzes with rubrics. The platform incorporates Microsoft tools (e.g., Word, Excel) and it can add a considerable number of applications (e.g., Prezi video, Flipgrid, Kahoot, Quizlet, etc). Cloud storages are also addable (e.g., SharePoint, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box). Team members can have group chats where they do audio calls, meetings, share screens and editable files. I have been teaching on MS Teams since October 2020. It has been a rewarding experience.
