Step 2: On the new screen that appears, click on the “Create team” button

Step 3: Next, define who’s part of the Team.

Make your choice based on how you want to organize your platform:

  • Class: If the team should only have a few specific members, select Private.
  • Profession Learning Community (PLC): Educators working group.
  • Staff: If you want to host your entire organization as one “team” on the platform and use channels to divide departments, Staff is the ideal option.
  • Other: Clubs, study groups, after school activities.

Step 4: Once you’ve chosen the type of team you want to create, you need to give it a name.
Choose an appropriate team name, like “Jefferson - Admission” or “Jefferson - ENG 101”, and then click the “Next” button at the bottom right.
