MS Teams for Courses Available Sept 13 2021

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

What do I need to do?
Beginning September 13, faculty can complete the “Microsoft Teams for a Course” service request from the IT Services portal providing the following information

  • Primary Instructor Name
  • Department
  • Course Registration Number (CRN)
  • The Date you would like the students removed from the Team (i.e., term, course, or custom end date)

Once the Service Desk actions your request, the Team will be created with the main instructor. A system process will run at night and will automatically synchronize your Team with the class roster in Banner. Look for your students added to your Team the day after your Team is created. Once the Team is created, faculty will be responsible for directing and monitoring the use and creating any channels. Resources for using MS Teams 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.
