Hi Class!

As the new term fast approaches, I wanted to touch base and make sure you could access our class in Microsoft Teams. Our first class will be online in Teams on date at time. You can access our Teams class within our Canvas class or directly within the Teams app [insert the link to your Teams class using the instructions below]. Please make sure your webcam works prior to our first session together.

If you need to Download Teams, please do! Then sign in using your university credentials and post a hello in the General channel of our class so I know you have access. If you are running macOS 10.15+ Catalina or Big Sur, you may need to Grant Teams Screen Recording Permissions before you can share your screen.

We’ll also be using Canvas throughout the term. Please make sure to check Moodle regularly for class assignments.

Looking forward to seeing you!
