Microsoft Teams will be Cedarville University’s standard video conferencing and team collaboration platform, effective Tuesday, April 5. Zoom will no longer be available following that date.
Over the last few months, Information Technology has been meeting with departments about using Microsoft Teams for workspace chat, teleconferencing and videoconferencing, and file storage and sharing. Microsoft Teams provides the same video conferencing capabilities as Zoom without the restrictions of time and participant limits. Teams is one of many applications included in the University’s Microsoft 365 subscription. There is no longer the need to purchase a professional Zoom license to conduct video conferences longer than 40 minutes with the capability of session recording. Those and many other features are provided in Microsoft Teams at no additional cost for a pro license. A brief instructional video was created to illustrate adding a Teams meeting to a Google Calendar appointment.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Information Technology at ext. 7905, send a text message to 937-766-7905, or submit a service request.
