Microsoft Teams is a powerful communication and teamwork tool that allows Clarkies to keep working and learning regardless of where they are on campus or around the world. Teams is the perfect tool for regular, small team or person-to-person collaboration and meetings.

All Clark users have access to Teams with their Clark University email account.

Calls: Voice and Video

If you need to speak to another Clarkie, Microsoft Teams allows you to make voice or video calls between users from your laptop, desktop or mobile device. No need to worry about being at home or in the office, Teams calls work the same regardless of where you or your caller are. Click here for a short video on how to make voice or video calls.

Chats

Sometimes you may just have a quick question or comment for someone that doesn’t require a full conversation. Teams is a great platform to connect with your colleagues, classmates, or friends with quick text chats. Click here for a short video on how to chat in Teams.

Collaboration

Teams also gives you the option of collaborating on Word, Excel or PowerPoint files with another Clarkie, or a full team. Editing and collaboration all takes place within the Teams application. Click here for a short video on how to share files and how to edit and collaborate.

With an iOS and Android app, Microsoft Teams allows you to continue collaborating when you’re on the go or away from your computer and chats are synchronized across all your devices. Click here to learn more about the mobile apps.
