Teams Overview

Description

Part of the documentation for Teams dissuaded a partner from trying to use Teams. Could we update the language in the overview to be less prescriptive?

https://edx.readthedocs.io/projects/edx-partner-course-staff/en/latest/course_features/teams/teams_setup.html#teams-overview

“-Teams are not as effective when members have no specific team tasks or goals. EdX does not recommend using teams in your course if you want only to provide a way for learners to connect socially. You can encourage learners to connect socially by using discussions within the course.- For more information about using discussions, see Running Course Discussions.”

Following the 3rd paragraph, we could simply state: "For more information about using discussions, see Running Course Discussions."

Thanks! Ben
