LACDMH web-based meetings and trainings are primarily conducted on Microsoft Teams (MS Teams), a workspace for real-time collaboration and communication, meetings, file, and app sharing in one easily-accessible place. Through MS Teams, participants can interact with the host and each other through video, audio, and/or chat messages.
The minimum requirements for participating are a computer that meets MS Teams’ hardware requirements, speakers/headset, a microphone, and a stable internet connection*.
Note that downloading the Teams app is not required to participate in MS Teams meetings; upon clicking the meeting link on the event invite, you will have the option to join the meeting via the browser-based version of MS Teams within Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or other supported web browsers.
*All LACDMH employees should have their own headsets with microphones. If you’re directly employed by LACDMH and you don’t have a headset, you can call LACDMH’s Help Desk to get a set.
Contract Providers are responsible for their own computer equipment, including headsets, to their staff
