Instructors: How to notify students of online class sessions

There are several ways to inform students about the "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" link for online class sessions.

  1. Go to your calendar in Outlook on the Web Calendar, Microsoft Outlook calendar or Microsoft Teams calendar.
  2. Double-click to fully open the specific calendar event item for your online class session/meeting. If you single-click, a pop-up preview of the event may appear, and the preview may not show you what you need.
  3. From the event item in your calendar, copy the Join Microsoft Teams Meeting link, the call-in number and Conference ID.
