Microsoft Teams: Getting Started
Microsoft Teams for Education is a cloud-based collaboration platform for use by faculty, staff, and students. You can chat, host and participate in video conferences, and share documents all from one place. Mobile apps for iOS and Android are also available.
Getting Started in Microsoft Teams
Step 1: Open your browser to: https://teams.microsoft.com
Step 2: Sign in to your Microsoft O365 account.
- Enter your primary Rice email address and select Next. (Your primary email address can be found in the Rice Directory or MyNetID account management system.)
- You will then be prompted to enter your password. Use your NetID password.
Step 3: At this stage you can either download the desktop app to your computer, or continue to use the service from within your browser.
- The desktop app will require you to log into your O365 account (repeat Step 2).
- When using the web app in your browser, you will be prompted to either "Turn on" or "Dismiss" desktop notifications. These notifications will alert you to new messages or when you have been mentioned in a Teams chat.
