How do I activate my Class Team?


Microsoft Teams is a digital hub that brings conversations, meetings, files, and apps together in one place. "Class Teams" are automatically created every semester from class rosters. Instructors are automatically added with the Owner/Teacher role for their courses. A Class Team is not automatically visible to the students enrolled. The instructor must "Activate" the Class Team in order for students to start using the service.

Note: a unique Class Team is created for every course section. Each section will need to be activated individually.
