The Illinois State University Microsoft (Office) 365 suite provides the Teams app. Teams is a chat-centered workspace in Microsoft 365. Teams puts together people, conversations, files, and other tools so groups can collaborate on projects or assignments and everyone has instant access to everything they need.
Teams connects you with chat, calls, and meetings within your team and in private or small group conversations. Schedule and join online meetings with HD video, VoIP, and dial-in audio conferencing options. Share your files, apps or desktop in online meetings and review important moments later with transcriptions of recorded content.
Integrated Microsoft 365 apps
You have access to your documents and info in SharePoint, OneNote, PowerBI, and Planner. You can create and edit documents right in Teams and include related conversations. You can also search across people, files, and chats with intelligence from Microsoft Graph.
Customizable and extensible
You can create custom channels based on projects or topics and pin commonly used files and websites for easy reference using the channel-based tabs.
