If your teacher schedules a remote class with Teams, you will receive a notification via the different communication tools on PoliformaT (email, announcement, etc…). Be attentive to the instructions.

On the scheduled day and time, you must join the team or channel on which the remote class will take place. You should see a scheduled meeting, which you can join with the button «Join«. Click on it and you will be inside the remote class ready to interact with your teacher and fellow students.

Follow your teacher’s advice during the class and do your best to make it sucessful.
