Setting Roles in a Teams Meeting

Microsoft Teams allows for two roles to choose from when setting up an online meeting. The two roles are Presenter and Attendee. In most situations, you would want to assign your students the attendee role. Students can be changed to a presenter role, on-the-fly, during a meeting should they want to share their screen.
