Teams Live Events provides an excellent way to stream live video and digital content to your students, enabling enhanced engagement.
Events can be used for webinars and ‘live learning and teaching’ demonstrations when delivering Learning and Teaching remotely.
Additional features include:
- Live Q&A
- Post-event video downloads
- Attendee engagement reports
- Live captions and translation
With Teams Live Events, you can assign members of your event team as producers or presenters. This could be very useful for student group activities, depending on your learning objectives. Microsoft Teams is integrated into Office 365 which makes it simple to share information and collaborate on files with your students. Following on from the event, you can access and share the recording to allow opportunities for Q&A and clarification of any missed points.
