Connecting to Microsoft Teams in Classrooms or College-Owned Computers

Overview

Microsoft Teams is an easy way to pull together a group to share, collaborate and communicate in one central location without the use of phone calls that take time away from our day or emails that can easily get buried.  From directly within Teams we can bring everyone together to share information, securely edit files live and at the same time, bring together Microsoft Office 365 apps (OneDrive, OneNote, Planner, Forms, etc) and third-party apps and websites in one place, tag members of the team in conversations or actions and customize the work through adding notes (OneNote and others) and other applications.  

Here is a quick overview of getting into Teams from a college-owned computer.

For a more in-depth walk-through with Microsoft Teams, view the Tech Talk video training.

Getting Into Teams

Here is how you access Microsoft Teams from a Classroom or other College Owned (Windows-based) Computer:

  1. On most college-owned Windows computers, you will see the Teams icon on the desktop. 
  2. Once you've done that, it might ask you to login.  If it does, input your FalconNet email address, and password.
  3. If you do not have that icon on your desktop, that's OK, you can still access Teams through a compatible web browser (Chrome or Edge only).  To do that, go to https://office.com, login with your FalconNet email address, and password.  Then click on the Teams icon in your dashboard (similar to above).
  4. You will now be brought into Microsoft Teams.  While we recommend the desktop application, both versions will work for most purposes.
  5. You are now ready to use Microsoft Teams
