Comments from those who selected Microsoft Teams as one of their Top 10 Tools

“We use Microsoft Teams to foster communication between project members of the largest project I am currently involved in (implementation of Moodle at Zuyd Hogeschool). Although I am not a big Microsoft fan, I must admit that Teams is user friendly and convinient for messaging and sharing documents.” Wilfred Rubens, 2018

“gradually replacing Microsoft Lync as a communication tool, and trying to compete with Slack. I’m still discovering all the possibilities, but the integration with SharePoint and OneNote looks very promising (workplace learning)” Jan Van Belle, 2018
