With the recent shift to 'working from home', many businesses have been utilizing Microsoft Teams to host their organizations' daily meetings. Teams is a free collaboration tool (with no commitments) offered by Microsoft. The free version of Teams offers unlimited chat, video calling, file sharing, storage, and more. In this blog post, I wanted to share these two educational video tutorials focused on presenting information when using Teams.
If you use Microsoft Teams you can now customize your own backgrounds, which is an enhancement over the simple blur background option. Don't worry though, if you prefer the blur option that is still available too. In this video, I show you how to change your background and share the directions for uploading your own background images.
I do recommend that if you upload your own background that you use a high-resolution image that is 1920 x 1080 in size. This custom background feature is a great addition and if you are creative there are many things you can do to make your virtual background personalized for you or your business.
Using 'Presenter View' in PowerPoint when presenting in Microsoft Teams
Working from home has many of us working with a single screen while still having to present in a meeting. When you have created a presentation that has your notes and cues and you cannot use them because you only have the one monitor it can be frustrating. In this next video, I show you as the presenter in a Microsoft Teams meeting, how you can view your presentation in Presenter View, while those watching your presentation see the full-screen slide view.
