Teaching with Teams Training

This site is developed to help provide faculty with more information on how to use Teams for instruction.  It contains three different sections, each focused on a different mode of instruction.  These include:

Teaching Remotely with Teams  – for those faculty who will be teaching completely remote

Classroom Simulcasting with Teams – for those faculty who will be using simulcasting within the classroom (some students on-site, some remote)

Recording Lectures for Asynchronous Teaching – for those faculty who want to use Teams to pre-record their lectures for asynchronous instruction.

Teaching Remotely with Teams

Faculty can create Teams Meetings directly from Outlook.  Once a meeting is created, the information can be copy/pasted into Blackboard to share with students.  Faculty should utilize the Meeting Options to set who can present and share screens.  It is recommended that the faculty member is set as the only person who can present.

The following links provide short videos and information on how to manage meetings in Teams.

Recording capabilities are available within Microsoft Teams. These recordings are stored in Microsoft Stream and accessible to anyone who attended the class session using their CCBC email address. Faculty are responsible for managing class recordings and who has access to them. All simulcast recordings should be deleted at the end of the semester (or once the course has completed).

If you plan on recording your sessions, you will need to inform the students in advance.  Faculty should speak with their department chair or school Dean to receive the messaging that should be sent to students.
