I know there is an integration of Microsoft Office 365 with Canvas for documents, collaboration, etc. Does anyone know if it is possible to have a link in a Canvas course to our Office 365 Teams Chat?
Tammy, I was able to get some more information about this here: Partner Day Keynote: Come on In, We're Open in the comments. (not much, but we should see more soon?)
Thanks Tommy ... we especially want to have the Teams chat integrated.
I just asked about this also, and was told that Canvas and Microsoft have only just begun discussions, so not to expect anything for some time, maybe later this year, early next year.
I'm hoping it'll help fill in some of the gaps with group functionality we're finding.
In case you missed it, microsoft teams integration with Canvas was mentioned at canvascon this year (2019). So it looks like it is in the works. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.
The Office365 integration also seems to be a bit more responsive. I notice that I can link to ANY file in the OneDrive - in the past it was just Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
PDFs embed on the page but videos require to be open in a new window
This would be welcomed although I'd like to see the following in place before then:
Looks like Moodle and Blackboard already have a Teams integration. LTI
I had a vendor send me a link for their product and as I began to look at it, it said it integrated with Blackboard and Canvas, but their app was performing similar functions of MS Teams. The problem was that the vendor's product already knew how to create Teams groups for the Canvas courses, not that it worked better than Teams.
Myles Carrick, any update you can give on this?
Is there any roadmap/timeline you can share?
I recall reading somewhere that the LTI for Class Notebook and Canvas is ending June 30, 2020 and that we should instead integrate Teams. All I can find online is to integrate Teams MEETINGS...I need a Class Notebook and that comes with a Team, but I don't want to have to manually give permission to each student to create a team so I get the OneNote...Anyone also dealing with this that can help?

Wow - that is news to me. Yikes!
I know that Microsoft have stopped the grade passback feature for ClassNotebook into Canvas but have not heard about the LTI.
I was told that the Teams integration would be with us at some time later in the year but have not heard anything official.
This is the sort of thing that needs to be shared with the Community by Canvas. I appreciate that Microsoft are the driving force behind the integration but we need to get planning things eg when do I move to Teams and use the Class Notebook there rather than create personal ones through the integration.
Perhaps someone in Instructure can update us or give us contact details for someone at Microsoft to let us know?
It looks like https://www.instructure.com/canvas/blog/instructure-canvas-integrates-microsoft-teams-keep-educators-students-and-administrators has some details on the Microsoft Teams integration in Canvas. I haven't gotten any hands-on experience with this yet.
That's news to me as well about the Class Notebook integration going away. Linda Macaulay, is https://www.onenote.com/lti the same integration you're referring to?
Thanks David. This is Team meetings. I am hoping for a much deeper integration that involves Class Notebook. Perhaps that is where this story about closing OneNote LTI has partly come from?
For information -
Connect Class Notebook to your LMS or SIS - Office Support
Syncing assignments between your LMS/SIS and Class Notebook will no longer be supported beginning June 30. However, you will be able to sync assignments created with Class Notebook pages using Microsoft Teams. Learn more about Grade Sync.
This will not affect existing LTI integrations between your SIS or LMS and Class Notebook.
