Training in Microsoft Teams

I am a trainer that instructs the same couple of classes but my audience is always different. I am used to using Adobe Connect. Materials I find are about environments where the students say the same. Is there a way to set up a space that has my training materials, my questions, polls etc set and ready to go instead of typing and loading into a new meeting each time? Any ideas or resources are appreciated.

    • In which case, your life just got easier! You can use channels (e.g. a Topic X Channel) to add your documents to, enable the Forms addin so that you can setup polls and so on. I haven't has as much experience with that as I'm always training externally, as a guest. There's plenty of good stuff on the web, YouTube and the Microsoft help pages that can give you different ideas of how that might work best for you :D
