Online Microsoft Teams tutorials as an alternative/ adddition to classroom based learning
What is Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing and online meetings.
At present the MCA are using Microsoft teams to conduct the Orals exams.
Microsoft Teams has many core components that make it an ideal platform to learn from.
We teach using:.
- Document storage in SharePoint. Every team who uses Microsoft Teams will have a site in SharePoint Online, which will contain a default document library folder. All files shared across all conversations will automatically save to this folder. Permissions and security options can also be customized for sensitive information.
- Online video calling and screen sharing- seamless and fast video calls that allows fast desktop sharing and multi-user real-time collaboration. We use this function for individual candidates, between just you and one of our tutors small group classrooms tutorials and our live twice weekly tutorials.
For the vast majority of the session, Barry provides visual information via screen sharing, such as presentation slides, diagrams and other teaching resources to help better explain a concept and maximise your learning.
As part of our blended learning Course
We offer Microsoft Teams to conduct mock exams and tutorials, as part of our blended learning course. One or two hour-long, focused tutorials can be arranged to fit in around your busy schedule in addition to or instead of your face to face tutorials and alongside your e learning.
We do not offer stand alone tutorials unless you are already using our e learning academy.
