Teams for courses available this fall

As part of the M365 project, faculty can request an MS Team be created for their course starting September 13, 2021.

What do I need to do?

To request an MS Team for your course, faculty will fill out the “Microsoft Teams for a Course” service request from the IT Services portal (available starting September 13). Once the request is submitted, the Team will be created and automatically synchronized with the class roster in Banner. Instructors can specify when they would like the student membership to be added to the team (i.e., term, course, or a custom start date) and when they would like the student membership to be removed (i.e., term, course, or a custom end date).

Once a Team for a course is created, faculty will be responsible for directing and monitoring the use of the Team and creating any channels. Resources for using MS Teams can be found here.

Faculty have the option to create and populate a Team for a course independently without support from IT; however, the Team members will not be automatically synchronized with the class roster in Banner. Instructions on how to create a Team can be found here.

Please note: The creation of a team may take 3-5 business days to fulfill a request. Students will be added to the Team on the date you specify on the form. Team membership is synchronized with Banner on a nightly basis
