Introduction

MS Teams Logo

MS Teams is a great platform for bringing together your Office 365 content, and with tools like recording, live captions, hand raising and the meeting chat, it’s a great choice for hosting webinars with students.

Privacy notice for recording sessions

Please ensure that students are aware that the session will be recorded, and that they have the option to ‘opt out’ and turn off their cameras if they wish. Please also refer students to our privacy notice, which can be found here.

As part of our efforts to keep our campuses and other sites safe and secure, enabling us to operate CCTV, body cams and audio and visual recordings of lectures and seminars.
