The DMMD Class uses Microsoft Teams in order to conduct online classes.
Step One: Download Microsoft Teams
Download Microsoft Teams by following this link. Once it is downloaded and installed, you will be able to sign in and set up your webcam, microphones, etc.
Frequently Asked Question: Do I need to download the Desktop App in order to make use of TEAMS, or can I just go through the Browser?The short answer is, you do not HAVE to use the Desktop App, but it will make your life much, MUCH easier. You can just use the browser if you wish… but you will lose some very useful tools and things that will make life better.
If you are brand new to Microsoft Teams, this video may be very helpful. He will cover how to get the app, set it up, and use it… and even offer some advanced tips. It’s worth a watch!
Step Two: Sign into Microsoft Teams
You will need to us your Student Email in order to sign in properly, and access the classroom Team to join the meetings with your classmates and Instructor.
- Your Email to use will be your STUDENTNUMBER@my.browardschools.com. Your Student Number should be on your Registration paperwork, but is also available to you via your Focus gradebook. If you cannot find your student number, email your Instructor for assistance.
- NOTE: Your Student Number should always start with a ZERO. If yours does not, you will simply add a 0 in front of the number. Example, if your Student Number is shown as 612345678, then in the email you would make it 0612345678 my simply adding a zero to the front.
- Your Password will be PMM/DD/YYYY, where the characters represent the digits of your birth date. For example, if you were born on January 10th, 1776 (you would be very old) but your Password would be P01/10/1776.
- You will need to keep the P and the / characters in the password.
Access your TEAM
On the left side of the app, you will see a stack of icons like Activity, Chat and Teams. Click on TEAMS. This is the home base for the classroom to quickly and easily jump into the daily meetings with the Instructor. You can see in the screenshot above that I have 5 Teams. I will click into the correct Team, and access all information for that specific group.
Once you are in the Team, you should see along the top section labeled Posts, Files, Notebook, etc. Pictured below, I can see the Posts that are relevant to the Team. When a meeting is active, a colorful brick will appear, with a button that will allow you to join that meeting.
