Microsoft Teams Meetings - Joining Instructions

Several of our digital skills courses are held via Microsoft Teams meetings. Follow the instructions below to join a Microsoft Teams meeting.

Instructions

Our sessions are held in a channel within the Digital Skills team. It is important you follow BOTH steps below to join a meeting:

  1. Join the Digital Skills team by following this link.
    Use your Cardiff Met username and password to sign-in, if prompted. For students this is ST[your student number]@outlook.cardiffmet.ac.uk for staff it is SM[your staff number]@cardiffmet.ac.uk
  2. At the date and time of the session, join the meeting by following the meeting URL. After booking on to a course, the meeting link is available on the course booking page on MetHub under the Event Venue section. It is also included in the confirmation email. Again, ensure you sign-in with your Cardiff Met account when joining the meeting.

You are able to join through a computer (Windows or Mac), tablet (iPad) or mobile phone. Joining on a computer is advisable to ensure you can see all the content. It is best to install the app, but this is not absolutely necessary.

You will need a speaker/headphones. A microphone is recommended, as you will be able to ask questions (text questions can also be asked). A webcam is also  recommended.
