Microsoft Form Polls in Teams
Post a poll in your Teams channel or quickly gather feedback in a chat pane. As a meeting organizer or presenter, you can use Microsoft Forms to create polls before your Microsoft Teams meeting, then launch them before or during a meeting so attendees can view and answer. When you launch your poll, it will pop up as a notification on the meeting screen and also appear in the meeting chat window. Attendees can also create ad-hoc polls during a meeting to get quick feedback on the spot. Learn more.
Using Stream and Forms together for interactive online lessons
Educators can upload the recorded videos and include a Forms quiz at the end of each lesson. These online quizzes can help students test their knowledge and get their scores immediately after each session. Learn more.
Assign quizzes to students through Microsoft Teams
If you already use Microsoft Teams to communicate with your class, it’s easy to send a Forms quiz to students using the Assignments feature in Microsoft Teams. Students can take quizzes in Teams, and you can grade the quizzes without leaving Teams. Learn more.
