Skype for Business Conference Room

We are excited to announce the completion of the first Skype for Business room on campus. MCD 130 is now equipped with the necessary hardware for you to come in and be able to have a full Skype for Business meeting experience with individuals from other campuses or institutions. On September 24 our old conferencing solution, Vidyo, which is no longer functional, will be turned off. Going forward we would like to encourage all staff and faculty to utilize the Skype for Business meeting functionality available to them through Office 365. Although this capability can be used by anyone needing to meet directly from their laptop, you can also utilize MCD130 or KBH 028 if you are looking to have more participants in your meeting in one room. At this time regional campuses can use the provided Logitech Connect devices with their laptops to facilitate these meetings. To better understand how to set this up please take a look at this tutorial available at this link: https://app.vidgrid.com/view/Z1QFketdHYQN

 

We will also be holding training sessions on how to make the most of Skype for Business for video conferencing needs. Please be on the lookout for another announcement with an opportunity to sign up for the sessions.
