New Feature: Creating a Teams Meeting within your Moodle course

By now it is more than likely that you have taken part in a virtual Teams meeting and maybe even created one yourself. For those wanting to set up a Teams meeting directly in Moodle, we have now added the Teams meetings plugin.

Teams button in Atto EditorDesigned by the team at enovation, this plugin allows you to create a Teams meeting in the calendar block (recommended), a forum or assignment activity, a label or page resource. In fact, anywhere you find the Atto Editor, you will see the Teams meeting logo. Once you have it set up, you will be able hold full module Teams meetings and even create group forum discussions.

Please note: the plugin only creates the access URL to the meeting. If you want to let your students know that a meeting has been set up within Moodle, you will still need to communicate this with them through the announcements forum.  

The easiest way I have found to set up a meeting within your Moodle course would be to use the calendar block.

Here is our step-by-step guide on how you can set up Teams Meeting in Moodle

For further information on getting the most out of Teams, see our Microsoft Teams for teaching webpages

If you would like to discuss this plugin further or have any questions, please contact the TEL team

We will be holding some more sessions on teaching with Teams in the next two weeks. We will advertise all our sessions in YSJ Daily, so do keep an eye out.

Can you think of any other ways you could use Teams meetings in Moodle? Let us know in the comments.
