Microsoft Teams course sites to be automated for spring 2021

IT Services plans to create Microsoft Teams sites for all course sections for the spring 2021 term. This automation will replace the one-by-one request process used in past terms. 

The automated Teams creation process for spring 2021 will begin Thursday, Dec. 17, and may take several days to complete. Instructors will receive an email confirmation as their Teams sites are created. Students will be automatically added to the Teams site just before the spring 2021 term begins. 

Note that this new process does not apply to J-Session courses starting in December. Instructors can request a Teams site for their J-Session courses via the Faculty Center in CheckMarq. Learn more about requesting Teams class sites.

If an instructor already requested a spring 2021 Teams site via CheckMarqnothing will be altered. The new process will not overwrite or duplicate the existing Teams site.
