Microsoft Teams integration with Blackboard

Blackboard has basic integration with MS Teams.
The integration allows instructors to create a Teams meeting link and is made available to all enrolled users on the course to join the meeting via the link.
Please note, this will not create a calendar entry on your Outlook or MS Teams Calendar. Students will also not get an invite via email; it only creates the meeting link on your course/module site and also on the Stream for students to join the session by copying and pasting the link to a web browser.
Please see guides below, on how to create an MS Teams meeting link on your Blackboard site:
