Lync 2013 - Basic Training (PC)

Microsoft Lync is software that enables real-time online communication and collaboration. It integrates with Outlook and provides the ability to chat with one or many Lync users, make Lync-to-Lync video or voice calls and hold impromptu or formal online meetings. Best of all, Lync allows you to see the availability and status of your colleagues based on their Outlook calendar, computer activity or preferred status.

This basic training class covers Microsoft Lync 2013 (for Windows) and is split into three parts. In part one, we’ll cover the interface, adding contacts, viewing and updating presence. In part two, you’ll use instant message (IM) to communicate and experiment with using Lync-to-Lync calling and adding others to the conversation. In part three, you’ll get to experiment with creating meetings and using the collaboration tools.

You do not need a headset to participate in session. If you have a headset, you are welcome to bring it with you to the workshop.

Mac Users: Lync for Mac and PC are noticeably different. You are welcome to enroll in this PC lab, however you may want to sign up for a Lync 2011 for Mac training. Lync 2011 for Mac training will occur on a less frequent basis.



You must be admitted to the Lync pilot to attend.


This class is limited to the KU Libraries Staff.
