What can you do in Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is such a tool, which has proven to be effective not only for organizing interaction between remotely employed office workers but also for setting up a wide variety of learning processes.
Teams is a versatile multithreaded, multilateral multimedia sharing tool. Its flexibility makes it a true virtual classroom – with broadcasting and two-way conversations, file sharing, individual tasking, and student check-in and check-out. And it’s all in a single browser window on any mobile device or desktop PC.
Students can comment on what’s happening in the text chat, as well as be included in the discussion by voice. It’s also possible to translate the text in the chat into different languages. The teacher, on the other hand, has the tools to pass the word to only one speaker and to switch the general broadcast from his desktop to any other (a kind of remote analog of a call to the blackboard).
The teacher also has no problem reminding students about the start of the next class using the built-in diary and informing absent students about the past class.
If you encounter any difficulties (bugs, errors, etc.) while learning, working, or doing anything else in Microsoft Tims, you should know that it can all be fixed. To do this, just contact the official Microsoft support to report the problem.
