This Microsoft Teams course will help you get you up and running quickly with Microsoft Teams. Think of it as a Teams fundamentals and essentials crash course for the workplace.
As part of the Office 365 suite of applications, Microsoft Teams is one of the most important and widely used Microsoft productivity apps in businesses around the world. It is also Microsoft's fastest growing application and has even surpassed the likes of Slack (another widely used business productivity application).
At the workplace, I use Microsoft Teams on a daily basis, multiple times a day every single day. And that's not a coincidence. Teams is just intuitive, modern, easy to use and a perfect fit for the interactions we have with people at the office.
Microsoft Teams allows you to communicate, collaborate, share files, work on files concurrently, make business decisions, solve business problems, manage your tasks and projects and more, a lot more.
The sky is the limit when it comes to Microsoft Teams. It's just that powerful, trust me. But beyond that, allow me to show you why it's so powerful and fun to use. And why so many businesses and people use it.
Teams is the hub for teamwork within Office 365. Teams fulfills the collaboration and communication needs of a diverse workforce, including chat, meetings, voice, and video. The look and feel of these functions is modern, intuitive, fast and fluid, has low-overhead, and is instantly familiar since it doesn't differ too much from other applications employees use in the modern world outside the office.
Teams integrates with all the apps you already use at the workplace. Teams integrates with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Planner, Stream and even Power BI, so employees have the information and tools they need available at their fingertips. Team members can also include other apps and services in their workspaces, for the team and organization.
Teams allows the ability to customize workspaces with tabs, connectors, and bots. For the developer community at Microsoft and elsewhere, Teams has an extensible platform for building apps that takes functionality further and allows teams to reach their goals and objectives.
Teams offers a complete and modern meeting experience. Prior to starting a meeting, team members can review conversations; during a meeting, teams can share content and use audio conferencing and video. Teams supports private and group meeting capabilities, scheduling capabilities, and free/busy calendar availability.
Teams has integrated security. Teams comes with the enterprise-grade security integrated with the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center and Azure Active Directory. It fits neatly into your primary solution for identity and access management, and allows you to maintain control over our data and environment.
Teams, in combination with Office 365, creates a hub for modern collaboration and effective teamwork. It empowers employees to engage with the business and each through a diverse set of channels, providing higher productivity and velocity in communication.
Who this course is for:
- People interested in learning about Microsoft Teams
- People curious about Microsoft Teams
- People using Office 365
- Business People

My passion for entrepreneurship, technology and education started when I was just a kid. By the time I was 15 I had already started three businesses: candy commercialization at school, newspaper recycling in my community and car washing for family and friends. I had also moved from Colombia (South America) to the U.S. to experience first-hand the American culture, something I was always curious about. Then I moved on to a knowledge based business, teaching English. And the rest as they say is history. I traveled the world, migrated to Australia, did 2 MBAs and started all the startups listed below. I also speak three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese), have been to over 60 cities in 14 countries & 4 continents and have also lived in Colombia, Mexico, USA and Australia (my home). I'm Colombian and also Australian.
