This course is designed to help you master Microsoft® Teams®, the key communications tool in the suite of Microsoft 365 productivity apps. Microsoft Teams enables individuals and organizations to chat, share ideas, collaborate on files, and essentially, work together. You can use Teams to have a quick chat with a colleague, participate in a virtual meeting, make an online call, and share files and resources. The Microsoft Teams app is available in three versions: a desktop app, a web app, or a mobile app. Once you are familiar with the Teams desktop app, you can easily transfer that knowledge and work in the web and mobile apps to take advantage of connecting through Teams wherever your work takes you.
This course is designed for people who need to use Microsoft Teams to communicate, share files, and conduct online meetings with colleagues. No experience with Teams is required; however, a basic understanding of Office apps will be useful.
To ensure your success in this course, you need to be familiar with the Windows operating system and with using a web browser.
