Microsoft Class Teams
Class teams are a specific type of Microsoft team with unique permissions and functionality.
Class teams allow the teacher to:
▶Communicate to groups or individuals;
▶Set, assess and track assignments / tasks;
▶Host and record live teaching activities;
▶facilitate collaborative activities between students.
One of the most common uses of your class team will be to communicate with your students. This may be an announcement, information about key events, links to external resources or celebrating success.

You may also want to capture actual classroom teaching for your students by recording a teams meeting. This can be used by students unable to attend the session or by students wanting to revisit the learning in their own time.
