Microsoft Teams: Launching Teams from a Web Browser

Tags web Teams


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.  For more information on how to install it, click here.

If necessary, you can launch Microsoft Teams from either Edge or Chrome web browsers and still have many of the same features that the desktop client application has.  While we recommend the desktop client, the web browser version can function in a pinch.  Here is how you do that.
