Knowledge, Learning, Community

So I use Microsoft Teams (along with most of the other online conferencing applications) and I cannot agree with the author that "Microsoft Teams is the future of virtual training." Indeed, when I see sentiments like this my overall feeling is that the proponent doesn't really understand online learning. It's not that we could simply exchange Teams for some sort of better app (Zoom, maybe? Slack?). The primary purpose of a tool like Teams is to get the person working with something that is not Teams (and often not even online) to develop a real skill, and then to use the conferencing only to report back and maybe get some questions answered. You can't learn something just by talking about it; that's how chatGPT learns, and we've seen how well that has worked out.
