You can join Teams meetings anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Join by link

All you need to join a Teams meeting is a link. You may have a link in your Moodle course topic list. Alternatively, you may have been sent a link by email.

When you open the link or select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting in your meeting invite, you’ll be taken to a page where you can choose to either join on the web or download the desktop app and then join. If you already have the Teams app, the meeting will open there automatically if you use the Edge browser, or prompt you to launch it in other browsers.

All NCA students and staff have a Teams account - it is your NCA email address. If you don’t have a Teams account and the organizer has allowed it, you may have the option to enter your name to join the meeting as a guest. If you do have a Teams account, select Sign in to join with access to the meeting chat and more. If you sign in, you can join the meeting right away. If you don’t sign in you will go to the lobby where people in the meeting can admit you.

Avoid being trapped in the lobby by signing in. If you use the app. you should already be signed in. If you join by web browser, don't enter your name next to the Join now button. Look for the sign-in link at the bottom of the window as shown below:
