Using Microsoft Teams for Meetings

While Microsoft Teams has multiple functions for workplace collaboration and communication, a primary function is as a virtual meeting/video-conferencing tool.

BCIT has implemented Teams as a replacement for its previous videoconferencing tool. As well, the Learning Hub is transitioning from Bongo to Class, which uses Teams for its videoconferencing capabilities while adding useful classroom management capabilities.

Accessing and participating in Teams meetings

Scheduling Teams meetings

Note: If you are scheduling a Teams meeting to use for an online info session, please also check out the recommended meeting settings to use for that purpose.

Recording Teams meetings

All BCIT staff and faculty have the ability to record Teams meetings. Recording meetings is cloud-based, meaning that the processing and storage of the recording doesn’t initially rely on your computer’s resources and won’t affect meeting performance.

Important: By default, recordings will only remain available online for 120 days, after which they will be automatically deleted and cannot be retrieved. If you want to retain a recording for longer than 120 days, you can adjust the expiry date or download it to your computer.
