Microsoft Teams is fitting for courses that require dynamic and flexible interaction, small-group teaching, collaborative projects, one-on-one conversations, and oral exams. You can use Microsoft Teams stand-alone or via your Brightspace course. Using the Webinar feature of MS Teams, you can organize online events for up to 10.000 registered participants (of which 1000 participants can participate interactively with camera, microphone, and chat). For more information, have a look at our overview of the different video tools.
