In the last two months, we’ve added a variety of apps for education and learning, new ways to poll your team, coordinate a trip to grab lunch with them, or easily share a glossary of your organizations terminology. Learn more about these apps and try them out in your team.


LMS365: Enable your learners to find, take and track their LMS365 Training directly inside Teams. Use the intelligent bot to help find courses and training plans available in your catalogs.


Nearpod: Share a Nearpod Lesson with your students or teachers in this channel. Simply sign into Nearpod and select the lesson you want to launch as a student paced session.

OpenAgora: Open Agora brings polling capabilities to Microsoft Teams. Mention @OpenAgora to interactively create polls inside channels, vote by selecting choices and view results in real time. Brainstorm by involving your teammates in polls: new choices can be added at any time by any team member, they can update their votes whenever they want, and select all their preferred options at once.


Glossary by BlueBridge: Quickly build your organizations terminology and post as a tab in Teams for added visibility.


Lunchbreak: Lunchbreak helps you connect with colleagues to organize trips to your favorite lunch place. Join others in their lunch break car rides or create your own lunch break car ride and let your colleagues join.
