Purpose: Creating a Microsoft Teams Meeting in Canvas


Microsoft created a basic Teams integration with Canvas.  You can use this tool to set up Teams meetings for your class straight from Canvas.  You can add a meeting to any assignment, announcement, or discussion (anything that has a rich content editor).

  1. Create a new assignment, announcement, or discussion.  
  2. Open the new content that you made and click "Edit".
