Features of working with MS Teams
When working with MS Teams webinars, creating a webinar announcement and task is not different from the process for other types of webinars.
Assigning a moderator #
Only a user who has a MS Teams license can moderate a MS Teams webinar. Details on the license are described here - MS Teams Settings.
When a moderator is assigned, the system will issue a warning about this:
Only one moderator can be assigned to an MS Teams webinar!
Changing from one moderator to another in MS Teams deletes the meeting created with the first moderator and creates a new meeting with a new moderator.
Webinar access #
Users can be assigned to the webinar immediately after creating the task. But they will not be able to access it until a moderator is assigned - the "Join" button will not be displayed, instead a following message will be displayed:
If the webinar user has an MS Teams licence, they will log in under their account name.
If the user does not have a licence - they must enter their name before accessing the webinar.
In order for a user to enter a webinar, the moderator need to allow them to enter.
Video recording of a webinar #
A webinar recording can be enabled in the MS Teams account itself. If a recording has been switched on, it is saved in MS One Drive after the webinar.
To share a recording with users you can:
1) Download the video from MS One Drive, create a video share in LMS Collaborator and access it in the knowledge base or assign it as a task.
2) Access the video via a link in One Drive and distribute the link to participants, or create a resource link in the LMS Collaborator and make it available in the knowledge base as well.
Webinar notifications #
In addition to the standard assignment notifications and webinar reminders from the portal, assigned users will also receive emails from MS Teams.
