Students - Joining a Microsoft Teams Meeting Space via Blackboard


Students - Joining a Microsoft Teams Meeting Space via Blackboard

Your instructor may choose to make a Microsoft Teams meeting available to your course through a Blackboard link. Joining this meeting can be achieved with the following steps:

  1. Click on the link in the course sidebar that your instructor provides. An example image is below - please note that the name of the meeting will be different and provided by your instructor: 

  2. You will be navigated to a page that looks similar to the image below. For ease of use, we recommend joining via the web, though if you desire you can install the desktop Teams app.

  3. If you haven't used Teams through the web before, it will request webcam and microphone access - click "Allow" on the popup. This may look different from the image below depending on your browser, as this screenshot was captured from the new Microsoft Edge Beta.


  4. After allowing access, you will be presented with a preview of webcam capture (if available) and the ability to toggle on/off your webcam and microphone before joining.

  5. Once you are satisfied with your settings, click "Join Now" to be connected to the meeting space. Depending on settings, your instructor may have to manually let you in to the meeting. If this is required, simply wait and you will be let in when they grant you access.


If you experience any issues, please feel free to contact the Help Desk at , via phone at 215-641-6495, or via Live Support at for assistance.
