    great news!  ·  Justin Chando responded

    Thanks to all of your feedback and thanks to our partners and their tireless efforts, we’ve made it possible for you to now set up a Microsoft Teams meeting for your online classroom directly from within your learning management system (LMS).

    This new capability allows you to quickly enable remote learning for your students and faculty by bringing the power of Teams directly into your LMS. We already have integrations launched across the world’s top LMSs; Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace, Schoology, and itsLearning!

    Learn more about these new integrations and get started today here; https://educationblog.microsoft.com/en-us/2020/03/microsoft-teams-meeting-creation-now-available-in-canvas-blackboard-schoology-brightspace-and-itslearning/

    The best part is this is only the beginning because as Teams evolves, we’ll continue to improve our LMS integrations as well. Thank you!

    It would be great if there were a Canvas integration for Microsoft Teams. Since Skype for Business Online will be retired and support ends on 07/31/2021 our institution is already considering moving over to Microsoft Teams.

    While there is Skype for Business Server 2019 (mainstream support ends 01/09/2024; extended support ends 10/14/2025), I doubt Microsoft will create newer versions of Skype for Business Server as they are encouraging migration to Microsoft Teams.
