    • Teachers can hold live audio and video conferences with up to 250 participants.
    • Enable schools and organizations to deliver a high-quality learning experience to remote students.

    The Teams Meeting app can be installed for courses from the Schoology App Center. Alternatively, system administrators can install the app for all courses.
