Microsoft has announced that the chat-based Microsoft Teams is now available for education customers.
Teams is the chat-based workspace in Office 365 Education. Teams brings people, conversations and content—along with the tools schools need—together in one place so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. Because it’s built on Office 365, faculty, teachers and students benefit from integration with their familiar Office 365 apps and services. It delivers enterprise-grade security and compliance, and is extendible and customizable to fit the needs of every team. Teams will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks to education tenants.
