Skype for Business is included in our Microsoft Office 365 license for full use by Faculty, Staff and Students. Skype for Business includes instant messaging, audio and video conferencing, online meetings, and screen sharing. But how do I use it? Can I schedule meetings from Outlook? Do all of the participants need to install the client and be in my contact list?

Fortunately, our other licensed service, Lynda.com has a new course titled: Skype for Business Essential Training. The full course is broken into bite sized chapters and sub-chapters so you can click right to what you would like to learn more about. Keep in mind that our license may not have access to all of the features shown.

The course is set up in 5 chapters:

  • Account and Contact Management
  • Calls and Chats
  • Scheduled Meetings
  • Sharing Extra Content During a Call
  • Mobile Apps

ITS has also created local help files in our Knowledge Base on Skype for Business.

First time with BSU/NTC credentials.
Several other articles can be found in the Productivity Section of the KB
