Teams now allows you to start meetings with students several new education-friendly features.

Students wait in lobby until you admit them (i.e. they can't start unsupervised without you))

Students enter as attendees, not presenters (i.e. they can't mute the teacher and take over by sharing their screen)

When you click "End Meeting" everyone's meeting ends (i.e. they can't stay in the meeting unsupervised after you leave)

You can start multiple meetings at the same time in different channels (even private channels) and bounce between them to emulate Zoom-like Breakout rooms, except that these are part of permanent small groups.

You can also record all of those meetings simultaneously so you know what takes place while your back is turned.

This is just a fun addition. I discovered how to do this about a month after launching the course, but it allows you to add any image as your background for a meeting in Teams. (It works best if you insert the image you want as a background for a slide in PowerPoint, then export that slide as an image, so the dimensions will be precise.)

This video shows how to use the screen recorder in PowerPoint.

Your task is to take a quick (2-3 minute) tour of your class team that you created and worked in throughout this course. You can use any screen recorder; it doesn't have to be PowerPoint.   I share this option because if you are planning to use Teams, you should already have this software (PowerPoint). 

For the last "Quiz", you only have to answer one  question. 

Paste the url to your video if you put it in OneDrive (and have permission to share files outside your organization) or Google Drive if you have a dry sense of humor like me, or if you know how to upload to YouTube and make your video private and share the link that way.

(Those are the ways I am familiar with.  If you have another way to share a url of a video and can paste that, feel free!
