Microsoft Teams integrates with Office365 and Canvas. More information can be found on UAB's IT Teams Website.

Microsoft Teams In Canvas

There are two Canvas Integrations for Microsoft Teams available in Canvas: Class Teams and Teams Meetings.


  • Microsoft Teams Classes allow instructors to create a Microsoft Teams group, called Teams Classes, containing all participants in a Canvas course with the click of a button, creating a space to chat, meet, call and collaborate with Office365 documents in real time.
  • Microsoft Teams Meetings allow virtual Teams Meetings to be scheduled & launched from the Canvas Course Navigation Menu.

Microsoft Teams Classes and Microsoft Teams Meetings can be accessed from within Canvas using the Course Navigation Links. These links must be enabled and set up by the course instructor.
