Due to COVID-19 regulations, the Alliance Française de Denver is offering cultural events exclusively online. You don't live in
Colorado? Not a problem! Everyone is welcome to attend. We have transitioned to TEAMS, a very simple videoconferencing software used by most
schools for their online language classes.
How do you join your virtual event with Alliance Française de Denver?
Once you have signed up for a virtual event, you will receive an automated email as soon as you have been added to the participant
After you receive this email, it is a good time to create a Microsoft account for free and download the free Microsoft TEAMS app on
your device. You can use any email service provider (Yahoo, Gmail, AOL…) to create a Microsoft Account. Please make sure to sign up and sign
in with the email address you used to register with the Alliance Française de Denver.
You can join a virtual event even if you do not have a Microsoft Account or have not downloaded the Microsoft TEAMS app. However,
for the best overall experience, we strongly recommend that you download Microsoft TEAMS app on your device.
The app will allow you to chat with your the host and other participants and share resources online.
PLEASE NOTE: If you decide not to download the TEAMS app, you will still be able to attend your
online class or virtual event. However, you will have limited access to helpful tools like chat, whiteboard sharing, cloud
space to share documents, etc.
When you download the app on your device sign in and click on the Teams menu on the left to see your event.
By clicking on the dots next to your event and then “manage team”, you
can see the list of participants. In the Chat menu, you can start a private chat with the host or fellow participants. Finally, you will
find educational material provided by your host in the Files menu.
After your event host schedules your class in TEAMS, you will receive an automated email notification with a link to join your
class. Your browser will automatically prompt you to open the meeting in the TEAMS app if you have downloaded it. Once you
have accepted the electronic invite, the link will also be available in the calendar attached to your email provider (Gmail,
Outlook, Yahoo…). If you did not receive the email notification, do not forget to check your spam folder.
Your event host will resend the link the day before or on the day of your event.
