FAQ - IT Services

How do I record a meeting?

Click the three dots on the floating bottom bar > Record web conference or “stop recording”. The video will take some time to appear in the Teams general conversation. 

The recorded file is stored on Stream, the video streaming service in Office 365:

> Go to https://www.office.com/ and sign in.

> Click on the Stream icon searching the app clicking the arrow “All apps.”

 

> Click “My content.” 

How can I verify attendance in my online course?

Once you join the meeting, hover over the middle control panel, click on the icon labeled “show participants” to the left of the hang-up (red) button. A bar on the right will show all participants who are live on the call. We recommend you take a screenshot of that sidebar for future reference if needed.

What should I do if one of my attendees cannot connect?

Ask them to check their internet connection. If they still run into issues,  tell them to contact IT Services (01 40 62 06 96) for immediate help.

Will my students be able to hear me comment over a video or audio recording I am playing on Teams?

Yes, as long as your sound is not muted during the recording.

How do I project a video or an audio recording during my meeting on Teams?

Videos embedded in a PowerPoint presentation will not play if you are in PowerPoint presenter mode. We recommend you share your entire screen (screen #1) to show your entire desktop and play a YouTube video on it.  For better experience, we recommend you share the link with attendees (in the Teams chat) so they can stream the video directly on their devices.

You can also broadcast a DVD if you like. As long as you see it on your own screen, attendees will see it as well as long as you share your entire screen with them.

 

How can I avoid background noise when using Teams?

As a presenter, you can mute and unmute participants to avoid background noise. 

> Click on "Show participants" in the floating bottom bar"

> "Mute All"

.        

 

How do I communicate with students during a Teams meeting?

Once you join the web conference, you will see a floating bottom bar with several options:

From left to right: turn on/off your camera, mute/unmute your microphone, share your screen, chat with attendees, and show participants.

We strongly recommend that you mute all participants to avoid background noises, choosing “Mute all” at the top of the right sidebar.

 

They can ask you questions via chat, or unmute themselves if they have questions. 

How do I set myself as the sole presenter and manage the "lobby"?

Setting yourself as sole presenter means that your have complete control over your presentation and students cannot take control of the screen. 

> Go to your Teams calendar and double click on your meeting. You will see the link that will lead you to your web conference "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting." 

> Click the “Meeting options” underneath.

         

These options will allow you to:

1. Manage “the lobby” which puts attendees in a waiting room before you accept them all at once. 

2. To be the sole presenter of your class clicking on "Only me" in the drop down menu next to "Who can Present?"

Important: We strongly recommend you set up these options before your meeting. If a student needs to present, we advice you ask your him or her to send you his/her presentation in advance and that you go through with him/her while s/he unmutes him/herself.

Why use Microsoft OneDrive and not Google Drive or any other services?

OneDrive is part of the Office 365 services that are provided by AUP to its community members, so it is supported by IT Services. It is also safer in matters of privacy issues.
