How to create a team

Note on creating a teams for a My Studies module

To support remote learning and teaching, we recommend you create a Private Team for your module instance which would include your module code (e.g. AB401) and academic year (e.g. 2020 for 2020/21)

You should plan to add at least one other member of staff to your Team as an owner in case of illness (instructions for this follow).

  • Add the details for your team including the name and description. The names of Teams used for teaching should include the module code (e.g AB123) and academic year (e.g. 2020). We recommend that other teams have the department or school included in the name (e.g. IS Admin Team).

Create team options

Leave the privacy set as Private, which is the default, and allows you to control who can join your Team. Public teams are open and discoverable for all staff and students to join without approval from the team owner. Videos made in Public teams are visible to all university staff and students. See more on Teams privacy.
