Microsoft Teams: Installing Teams on a CCC Classroom Computer


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.  

Each semester, the Office of Information Technology will be automatically creating and populating your Class Teams for you.

You may find that you are on an instructor station computer that does not have Microsoft Teams installed, or cannot find the Teams icon on the Desktop.  Here is how you update or install Teams on the computer you are using in a classroom.  Because Microsoft Teams is an individualized application, the Office of Information Technology can no longer pre-install Teams on these shared computers.

Remember: In a pinch, you can log in to and click on Teams to access Teams from any computer, anywhere (using Chrome or Edge browsers).

Installing Microsoft Teams

  1. On each classroom instructor's station, there is a shortcut on the desktop and in the Start Menu that says #1 Install Microsoft Teams.  Click on this icon, this will launch the Microsoft Teams installation process.

  2. After the splash screen comes up and goes away, you will be asked to log in to your Teams account.  Use your FalconNet email address and password.
  3. After you enter this information, it may ask you if you want the organization to manage this computer.  You can answer either way, and it will have no impact on Teams operation - however, we suggest you say No.
  4. The installation can take anywhere from 2-5 minutes to complete.
