Teams is a collaboration tool designed to help people learn and work better together. It is an online shared space for teams where members can post messages, pictures and links with the ability to comment and discuss on the things posted.  

It also doubles as a place to store shared documentation and makes it easy to collaborate on Word documents, annotate images and chat with team members.  

Features include: 

  • Team Chat - instant message individuals or groups 
  • Online Meetings - host text, audio or video team meetings within your team space. 
  • Integrated Office 365 apps - Office 365 apps are built in for easy access to SharePoint, OneNote, Power BI, Planner and more.
