How to Use Teams – More than Just Meetings (COMM 744, 2 Hours) will be held from 9 – 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 9 and Thursday, February 11, 2021. Teams has become one of the most widely used communication tools during the COVID-19 pandemic. It allows businesses and individuals to meet, chat, call, and collaborate all in in one application. Microsoft Teams works perfectly with Office 365 applications to integrate Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint and Outlook together to make your workplace more efficient.   

“In response to requests from local businesses and clients, we have divided the seven-hour classes into shorter segments so students aren’t required to commit a full-day to participate,” said Barry Kinsey, director of workforce development at MCCC.  

To register, please email or call 734-384-4229. “These classes will fill up quickly, so we encourage businesses who want to enroll several employees and individuals who are looking to enhance their knowledge and skills contact us early to reserve a seat,” added Kinsey.
