Mircosoft Teams is an online collaboration platform with a focus on e-learning scenarios.
To use the video and audio chat, a webcam and a microphone (better a headset) are required.
IMPORTANT: The system is hosted in the Microsoft Cloud, so the data centers can only provide limited support for technical problems.
In order to enable a common, university-wide and simplified access to Microsoft Teams, all locations of the University of Applied Sciences Trier will be managed in a common Microsoft Azure environment in the future. This will enable login via Shibboleth and facilitate cross-location collaboration. Since a merger of the two previously independent Microsoft Azure environments (technical jargon tenants) is unfortunately not technically possible, please note the following modified instructions.
You will get access to Microsoft Teams, as well as various other Microsoft Office 365 products.
The licensing of services in the Microsoft Azure Cloud is based on a Federated ID (with transfer of personal data).
In order to use the service, it is mandatory to confirm the transfer of personal data to Microsoft.
To enable users from Birkenfeld to log on to the university-wide Microsoft Azure environment, the tenant in Birkenfeld had to be renamed. This changes the way of authentication on the old Tenant. Access to this tenant will only be possible for a limited time (probably until the end of the winter semester 2020/2021).
Signing up with Microsoft Teams always takes place via the portal: www.office.com (where the user name entered is used to determine whether you are logged in the old, or the new tenant).
If you still need to invite people to the old system during the transition period, this must be done manually. Please contact our Helpdesk help(at)umwelt-campus.de.
