Using Microsoft Teams

We will be using Microsoft Teams to deliver lessons remotely.

You can use Microsoft Teams on your mobile phone / tablet / PC or laptop.  Please ensure your device has a camera, as some older laptops or PC's may not have one.  In which case, you will need a separate webcam.

To improve the quality of the online meeting, it is recommended that you use headphones with a built in microphone, e.g. the one you would use with a mobile phone or a gaming console.  If you do not have any headphones with a built-in microphone, then please just use normal headphones as this will help reduce audio feedback.
