Microsoft Teams live events are an extension of Teams meetings that enables Oxford University staff to schedule, produce and broadcast meetings to a large online audience up to 10,000. Teams Live Events is designed to be used for large-scale information dissemination such as town hall meetings, departmental updates, broadcasting keynotes or online training at scale.
Temporary access to Team Live
Microsoft have made Teams live events host capabilities available to education users on a temporary basis. This means that all Nexus365 users now have the ability to host and broadcast live events.
Please note that Microsoft will automatically disable live events for all Nexus365 users on July 1, 2020.
Team Live Capacity
Please be aware that there is a maximum limit of 50 Team Live events running at the same time in the Nexus Tenancy.
We would recommend that you continue to use standard Teams meeting where possible and only use Live events if the audience numbers will exceed the 250 maximum participant limits for a Team Meeting.
