Microsoft Teams

Teams is a Microsoft application that can be used for phone calls, audio/video conferencing, chat, file-sharing and more. 

Teams can be run either in a browser ( or as a native application on desktops and laptops runing Windows or MacOS, as well as mobile devices running Android or iOS (see links below for the installer).   Running Teams on a mobile device (laptop or smartphone) allows you to make and receive phone calls anywhere as if you were in your office.  


Box (

Box is a file-sharing service.  It can be used to make files available to your students, such as a PDF of a PowerPoint presentation.  We suggest making your links open to “Anyone with the link” (see for more information), so that students do not need to log in to get to instructional content.
