Virtual Meeting Tools at Eastern Florida State College

There are many different ways Eastern Florida State College has incorporated virtual meetings to accommodate our students both inside and outside the classroom, plus as a way to connect faculty and staff. Here you will find information about how to access a virtual meeting for various applications at the College.

Virtual Classroom Meetings

Instructors might be doing online, live meetings in the Canvas Learning Management system during your course attendance. Instructors may be using one of two conference tools for these meetings: Microsoft Teams or Canvas Conferences.

Resources

Microsoft Teams in Canvas

Your instructor will provide you with a meeting link. They might post the link in the Canvas course or send a link to your college email. Microsoft Teams is included for all EFSC students as part of the Outlook 365 package that you also use for your Titan student email. Your best experience attending live Canvas meetings in Teams is by downloading the Microsoft Teams app, either from a link below or from the applicable app store for your device.

Once you have completed the required Canvas Orientation, you also will be able to access these MS Teams resources in the Canvas Student Resources course by clicking on the "Help" icon in the Canvas tool bar.

For specific questions about functions within Microsoft Teams, visit the MS Teams Help and Learning site.

Canvas Conferences

Canvas Conferences are built into a Canvas course. If your instructor will be using this tool to meet online, you can find the Canvas Conferences tab in the course menu. Below are several guide links for Canvas Conferences:

Please note, once you have completed the required Canvas Orientation for first-time users, you also will be able to find these Canvas Conferences Guides in the Canvas Student Resources course by clicking on the "Help" icon in the Canvas tool bar.
