Earlier this year, Middle Georgia State University rolled out Microsoft Teams as its primary collaboration tool. Teams is a chat-based workspace in Office 365 that makes it easy to chat, host meetings, share files, collaborate on documents, and get work done with teams across the organization.

Teams is now available for all MGA faculty, staff, and students.
