MS Teams for education

Teams is the digital hub for Microsoft 365 (M365) bringing conversations, content, and apps together in one place. You can use Teams to communicate and collaborate with groups of students, lecturers, and staff in any combination. Within a group (team) you can chat, have online (video) meetings, share and collaborate on documents and more.

Brightspace is the official online platform for education
Although there is an overlap in functionality with Brightspace, you are recommended to use Brightspace and adhere to the formal guidelines within your faculty for assignments and assessment for use in the formal education process. In Teams the functionalities for Assignments and Grades are not active.

Getting started with MS Teams

Everyone at the TU Delft can use Teams. Teams is available through the browser, but it is recommended to install Teams on your PC, Linux or Mac. You can also download the app on your phone and tablet.

Safari does not fully support Teams, please use Chrome instead, or even better, download the app.
