Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams

Teams is a chat-based collaboration tool that provides global, remote, and dispersed teams with the ability to work together, and share information via a common space. You can utilize features like document collaboration, one-to-one chat and team chat. Teams also links in with Office 365, OneDrive and Stream. You can create a Team for a class, a department or for some other Conservatoire group that would find a private online community space useful.

You can make audio and video calls via teams to any member of the RCS community on a one-to-one or group basis. Team’s calls are made via the internet, so you won’t have to pay for the call.

Microsoft Teams is available as a Web app through Office 365 at or you can download the desktop application from the link below.
