How To Schedule A Teams Meeting For A Class

Summary

You can use Microsoft Teams to schedule a virtual class meeting. You can schedule a single meeting or a reoccurring meeting in Microsoft Teams. 

Meeting Tips

Before you schedule online meetings for your lecture, it is important to know which dates & times you’ll be scheduling the meetings for.

Example: If a course meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:00am, and the first day of lecture is on February 1st, 2021 and last day is May 11th, 2021 – we could use the recurring meeting option to schedule all of our meeting for the entire semester.

How to Schedule a Virtual Class Meeting Using Microsoft Teams Meetings

Step 1: Open Microsoft Teams and select Calendar from the sidebar.

Step 2: Click the arrow next to Meet, then click Schedule a Meeting.

Step 3: Start by giving your meeting a name that clearly associates it with your course. Select the first day of lecture, and then add the start and end date/time.

Step 4: Click the recurring meeting drop-down menu, then select “Custom“.

Note: The start date should coincide with the first day of lecture for your course. Courses repeat weekly, and in this example our class is held on MWF. Set the End date to the last class-day of the semester (View Loyola University MD's Academic Calendar).

Step 5: Use the Add Channel field to browse through your list of teams to select the class team and channel that corresponds to this online meeting. In this example we’ll simply add the General channel of our Tech Team Intro class team.

Step 6: Enter a description if desired. Double-check that you’ve entered the correct time and dates for your meetings, then click Save to send the meeting invitation.

Step 7: Repeat this process for all of your classes.
