Microsoft Teams and OneDrive now live

August 17, 2020 at 9:00 am

Microsoft Teams and OneDrive have now launched and are available to all UBC students, faculty, and staff.

Microsoft Teams is an all-in-one collaboration tool to create virtual meeting spaces and facilitate group work through web-conferencing, group chat, and real-time document collaboration. Microsoft OneDrive is a secure file-hosting service that allows storing, sharing, and synchronizing up to 1TB of files and folders from any connected devices.

At this time, the main focus of the launch is to facilitate student-to-student communication via chat, video conferencing, and document collaboration. In the lead-up to winter term 2, additional communication and resources will be available to support faculty who wish to incorporate the tools in their teaching.

Start exploring these new tools with UBC’s Microsoft Teams instructor guide and Microsoft OneDrive instructor guide.
