What Is Microsoft Teams? 

Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines persistent workplace chat, call capability, video meetings, file storage (including collaboration on files), and application integration. Teams is integrated with Microsoft Office 365, allowing it to be used along side other Microsoft Office services. All Valencia faculty/staff employees have access to this platform and can sign into Teams with their current email account via the Internet or the desktop application. Below are instructions for how to open/access teams; however, to gain some further familiarity with Teams, you can view the videos in this playlist.
