How do you become a backing singer

Create a course team in Microsoft Teams

Course teams have special permissions and features for teachers and students. As the owner of the team, teachers assign work materials, share lesson content, start meetings and control who can post on the team. Each class team is also linked to their own OneNote class notebook.

Note:Don't see the option to add or create a team? Your IT administrator may need to enable these permissions for you.

Your IT admin can use School Data Sync (SDS) or another method to create suggested courses for you based on your course list and student lists. Select the pre-made courses to automatically add your students and set up your course teams.

Create a team from suggested courses

  1. Choose Teamsin the application bar.

  2. Choose Suggested courses out.

    If you're using Grid View, Suggested Courses are next to the Join or Create Team button in the top right under Teams. If you are using the list view, you will find this at the end of your team list.

  3. A window opens with a list of the courses you have proposed. Select the classes you want to use by checking the boxes.

    Note:When you create a course, you add students and provision the team. However, you are in control of when your students can see the class team.

  4. Choose Create out. When your team tile appears, click on it to open it.

  5. Your students are automatically added to your team, but it is not yet visible to them. That way, you'll have time to organize everything, add content, and complete all of the prep before admitting students. Whenever you are ready, choose the banner Activate in teams upstairs to greet the course participants in the course.

Create a team from a group

If you don't have any suggested courses, you may be able to set up courses with groups pre-designed by your IT admin. Contact them if you are unsure about how they configured your courses.

  1. Choose Teams in the application bar.

  2. Move your mouse over the tile Join or create a team and choose Create team.

  3. Select one of the groups your school created and select Select group out.

  4. Your students are automatically added to your team, but it is not yet visible to them. That way, you'll have time to organize everything, add content, and complete all of the prep before admitting students. Whenever you are ready, choose the banner Activate in teams upstairs to greet the course participants in the course.

Building a team from scratch means adding the students to the team yourself, as well as providing all the other information. Check with your IT administrator if you want to explore other options for setting up courses.

  1. Choose Teams in the application bar.

  2. Choose Join a team or create a team> Create a team out.

  3. Choose course as a team type.

  4. Enter a name and optionally a description for your course team.Example: Ms. Lange, level 3, meets in room 301.

  5. Choose Further out.

  6. Now when you want to add students to your course, follow the steps to add the students and / or additional teachers as team members. This will add them instantly. You can always skip this step at this point and add students later.
