Imperial College London uses Teams to teach and connect in a time of COVID

A world top ten university, with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research, Imperial College London now uses Microsoft Teams to teach and connect in a time of COVID-19. In this video, see how the college is now relying on Teams for the delivery of its lectures and its remote labs, as well as a "virtual common room" where students and faculty can interact. Staff now have the fluid integration of shared files, scheduled events, and the students' use of the virtual learning environment, providing opportunities to respond to students in a way never done before.

Our aim is to integrate with or completely remove the need to have a ‘comms room’ and ITC infrastructure – allowing a switch in IT payment models from Capital Expense (Capex) to Operational Expense (Opex). For that reason, we’ve invested heavily in a cloud platform, which we call the Cloud High Performance Technology.
