Microsoft has created an application that allows instructors to create a Teams meeting and share that with their students. We've turned that application into an LTI Advantage tool that can be integrated with Learn. Our integration allows users to launch Microsoft Teams Meetings directly within any Learn course.

The Teams Meeting can be organized into an appropriate area of the course. You may want to consider a folder specific to meetings or sessions. If your course is organized by weeks or other sequence, you may want to place a meeting session into the correct place within that structure

File sharing

This integration streamlines the process of creating meeting sessions and setting them up as Microsoft Teams chat. The open access links to the session created by Microsoft Teams are added to the Course Outline in  Ultra Course View or the first Content Area in the Original Course View and as calendar entries in the Learn course Calendar.  

This integration doesn't manage user data, membership, or entitlements to the Microsoft Teams site. If students need access to Files or other tools in Microsoft Teams, you'll need to add those users to the Teams site. There isn't a direct integration with Teams Files, tools such as Wiki or Assignment, or other O365 services such as OneDrive, Outlook, or Calendar. Students can still export their Learn calendar, including Teams chat sessions, into their Outlook calendar. For assistance with using the features of Microsoft Teams, Outlook, OneDrive, and other O365 capabilities, including how users can collaborate and share files using these tools, please use the support resources available from Microsoft.
