Microsoft Teams Meetings

Microsoft Teams has partnered with Instructure, the parent company of Canvas, to ensure that students and instructors stay connected in more ways — you can now easily create online meetings directly from Canvas so that classes can meet virtually. This integration aims to make communication and collaboration through learning resources more accessible to students and teachers.

Using your Rutgers email account, instructors and students can meet synchronously in a Microsoft Team Chat. The Chat will retain a copy of your meeting recordings, files, and chat messages.  Instructors who plan to use advanced synchronous engagement practices such as breakout rooms or polling will need to use Canvas Conference, powered by BigBlueButton, or Cisco Webex Training Center.

Please note students do NOT need Rutgers accounts in order to join a Microsoft Teams Meeting within Canvas.
