Microsoft Teams vILT Integration

A Microsoft Teams vILT integration is available in the Edge Marketplace. The Microsoft Teams vILT integration provides the following features:

  • When administrators create, update, or cancel a single or multi-part session in the Learning Management System (LMS), its corresponding Teams meeting will be created, updated, or cancelled through the integration
  • End users and instructors can launch MS Teams sessions through the Learning Management System
  • Attendance information can be retrieved
  • Multi-part sessions are created with each session part as a separate meeting in MS Teams
  • Manage virtual meetings for multiple accounts
  • Mark attendance based on time (%) present in virtual session
  • Support for the "Organizer" role for instructors and for Break Out rooms via the Organizer role when using Application authentication

Note: SSO is not built into the Microsoft Teams vILT integration. Customers who enable this integration will not automatically have SSO enabled in their portal. This integration is independent of any SSO solution.
