About The Guide

What Parents Need to Know About Microsoft Teams

Published 10th June 2020

A free online safety guide on Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams, or simply ‘Teams’, is a platform that allows for collaborative working, either as students or as professionals, using communication capabilities through audio, video and instant messaging. The software is available both online through a web browser and to download from microsoft.com. Users can have 1:1 online meetings or set up live events to host up to 10,000 people. Groups can be set up to include only relevant users and almost all file-types can be uploaded and shared, from PDFs and Word documents to audio and video files.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as hackers, viruses and cyberbullying.
