Microsoft Stream

Today we’re focused on Microsoft Stream, a collaboration tool that provides an easy way to record videos in the cloud and access them from anywhere. Do you need a place to store training videos and other in-house educational content? Maybe you just need to record a quick how-to guide for one of your apps or business processes. You can do all of that directly in your browser without having to purchase or install any apps! Here’s how Microsoft describes this service:

Increase engagement and knowledge retention for training and education; enable everyone to contribute with peer-to-peer information sharing.Drive engagement across your team by creating and delivering video with high-quality playback and scale from your desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Wherever you are.

With the increase in “work from anywhere” environments, sharing information with team members can be challenging. With Microsoft Stream, all your videos are in one place, wherever you are. Watch videos from across your organization in the Stream application or in other applications you use every day—any time, on any device. The best part? Stream is deeply integrated with Microsoft Teams, enabling you to be productive wherever you are in the world.
