Schedule a virtual class in Teams

You can schedule virtual classes to replace your in-person teaching through your calendar, either in Outlook or in Teams itself. When you invite your students to the virtual lesson they will receive an email invitation including the link to join the lesson. As it’s in their calendar they will, by default, receive a reminder 15-minutes before the lesson is due to begin.

You can also schedule these lessons to also appear in your class Team, in whatever channel you choose. This guide shows you how to schedule your class in your calendar through Teams. View it here or download it to serve as a reminder or to share with your colleagues.
