HELPFUL HINTS FOR USING MICROSOFT TEAMS
(excerpted from this article)
- You do not have to install the desktop version of Microsoft Teams on your computer to attend sessions. Clicking the link for any session should open the web version of Microsoft Teams on your computer.
- To use Microsoft Teams on your phone or other mobile device, you will need to install the Microsoft Teams app or use the call-in feature.
- You do not need to create an account or log in. However, you will be prompted for your name (similar to entering a screen name for Zoom meetings).
