Verify Hardware Requirements

Please ensure you have the necessary hardware, including a working web camera, microphone, and that they are properly configured.

Before Using Microsoft Teams

Using Microsoft Teams requires users to have a preexisting Office365 email address, such as example@austin.utexas.edu. Your students will need to have an Office365 account before they can attend any online meetings, whether these are scheduled or impromptu. If you suspect any of your students do not have an Office365 email address, they will need to create one using the instructions found here.

Please note: If a student newly-creates their Office365 email address, they will not be able to use Microsoft Teams for up to two hours after they request the email address.
