As COVID-19 continues to impact the lives of people around the world, many schools are making the difficult decision to temporarily close for the health and safety of their students and staff. Microsoft recognizes the challenges this presents to both schools and the families of the students and wants to help make the transition to remote learning as smooth as possible.
Free for schools and universities, Microsoft Teams for Education provides an online classroom so students and educators can continue to focus on learning outside the physical school environment. Teams brings together virtual face-to-face connections, assignments, files, and conversations into a single place accessible on either mobile, tablet, PC or browser. Microsoft has worked to create resources and on-demand webinars to help teachers, staff and families get transitioned to a remote learning environment. Hope you find them helpful:
