Microsoft Teams for MTI Students

You will be able to meet with your teachers and classmates online within Microsoft Teams. Think of it as your online meeting place for anything related to your classes. If your class uses Moodle, keep using it for assignments and downloads. For class lectures, discussions, or any live communication, use Teams.

Where do I get Teams?

Microsoft Teams can be used in a web browser such as Google Chrome or Edge. If you are using a desktop or laptop computer, it is recommended to install the desktop app. You can also use a mobile version of Teams by downloading an app on your mobile device at the Apple App Store or Google Play.

On a desktop or laptop, go to this address:

https://teams.microsoft.com/start

From this address, you can use your @mticollege.edu username and password to log into Teams.

To download the recommended Teams app, download and install it here:
