As shown in this video, all faculty, staff and students can create a MS Teams meeting using Outlook or the MS Teams app. But read on to see how instructors can create a virtual MS Teams class meeting from within a course shell!
You could create a MS Teams meeting in Outlook or Teams and send an invitation to your students or copy the meeting link and paste it somewhere in your course. But now it is even easier to setup a Teams meeting within your course.You can do this as a topic link within a module or as a link within content such as an announcement, module or topic description, or HTML file using the HMTL editor.
To create a topic link for a MS Teams meeting as a topic link in a module, navigate to the module where you want the link.
Select the Existing Activities button then select MS Teams Meeting from the list of options.
You may be required to sign in with your Daytona State College user ID and password. Note that you may have to scroll down to see the Sign In button.
Select the Create meeting link button.
Provide the meeting title, start and end date and time, and select the Create button.
Set the meeting options such as who can bypass the lobby and who can be presenters and then select the Insert button.
You will now have a link at the bottom of the module based on the title you provided for the meeting.
Select the context menu dropdown arrow next to the link name and then select Edit properties in place.
Next, select the checkbox for Open as External Resource.
You can also provide a MS Teams meeting link within content wherever the HTML editor is available, such as an announcement, module or topic description, discussion, assignment, calendar event or HTML file. Basically anywhere you can use the HTML editor, you can insert a MS Teams meeting. In this example, I will insert a meeting link in an announcement.
Create a new announcement or edit a current announcement.
On the insert quicklink popup, scroll down to the Third Party section and select MS Teams Meeting.
From this point, follow the steps shown in the screens above for setting up the MS Teams meeting link. The text you provide for the MS Teams meeting will be inserted into the announcement at your cursor location as a link to the meeting.
Here is a short video demonstration of the MS Teams integration in Falcon Online.
