Latest revision as of 14:25, 29 September 2021

Fall 2021 begins our Teams Classes Canvas Pilot - learn how to set up the Teams Canvas integration and best practices for using Teams in your teaching.

Before you get started, make sure you have a Canvas course created for your offering.

Using Teams and Canvas with your students

  • A common strategy is to use Teams posts for faculty and students to share news and announcements.
  • Consider using Canvas announcements for important class-related push communications to your students
  • Encourage your students to get the Teams mobile app.
  • Uploading files to the Team will automatically make those files available to all class members. This is often an easier way to share files than using the Office365 Canvas integration which connects to the faculty's OneDrive.

Enable the Teams Sync in Canvas

Teams Sync will automatically add faculty and students to your Team and keep synchronized with your Canvas course enrollment.

  1. Navigate to your Canvas course
  2. From your Canvas course, left-hand navigation menu go to Settings
  3. From the top menu tabs choose Integrations
  4. Expand the Microsoft Sync option and enable it under the State toggle
  5. The first time you enable Sync you will need to trigger it manually
    • Click the Sync Now button
    • This will initiate the creation of your Class Team which may take up to an hour to generate

Prepare your Team

Once your Team has been created students will not have access until you "Activate" the Team. This gives you the opportunity to prepare the Team prior to student access.

  1. Launch the Teams app (either via the desktop app or via a web browser at office.com)
  2. The Activity Feed will alert you when your Team has been generated.
  3. Create a welcome post on the General channel. Consider including the following:
    • Clarify with your students how Teams will be used in your offering. What content/activities will reside in Canvas and what content/activities Teams will be used for.
    • Add a link back to your Canvas course


Example Welcome Post

Welcome to our Class Team!
We'll be using Teams as a supplement to our Canvas course <link to your Canvas home page> as a place to:

  • post news/announcements
  • chat one-on-one or in groups
  • Team meetings can be used for small group or one-on-one calls (we will continue to use Zoom for our primary class remote sessions)
  • Note: you can ignore the "Grades" link above - instead refer to Canvas for all assignments

Activate your Team

Once you are ready for students to have access to your Team:

  1. Navigate to your Team
  2. Click the Activate button at the top

Once the Team has been activated, students enrolled in your Canvas course will automatically be added as members of the Team. The Team roster will auto-sync whenever changes occur in your Canvas enrollment.

Class Team Default Permissions

As the Team owner you can manage what students (members) are allowed to do within the Team. To access these settings:

  1. click the 3 dots next to your Team's name and choose Manage Team
  2. Select Settings from the top navigation
  3. Expand Member permissions - By default:
    • Team owners (faculty) can delete all messages
    • Members (students) can delete and edit their messages
