Microsoft Teams can be used by learning providers to create collaborative classrooms; connect in learning communities; communicate with staff; and coordinate research across institutions, among other things. Its web conferencing feature brings virtual face-to-face connections, assignments, files, and conversations into one single platform that is easily accessible on a mobile device, tablet, or PC.

MS Teams simulates a classroom environment for students by allowing teachers to add selected students, exchange lectures, set assignments, communicate virtually in real-time, and provide individualised feedback, all on one platform. The ability for both teachers and learners to screen share and record calls enables an additional layer of collaboration.
