Get up and running with Skype for Business, the enterprise communication and collaboration tool included in Office 365.
- [Nick] Welcome to this course on Skype for Business. I'm Nick Brazzi. Skype for Business is the enterprise level version of Skype, that is used by large organizations to support instant messages, video calls, and online meetings between coworkers and business partners. I'll start by clarifying the difference between the consumer level Skype and Skype for Business. We'll talk about how Skype for Business deployments work, and how you can get the tools installed. Next, we'll go through the different types of online conversations that you can have, text-based messages, audio and video calls, and scheduled meetings.
I'll explore the additional tools that you can access during online conversations. You can share files and even edit documents together with your online collaborators. You can share your screen, and you can display a whiteboard or poll questions. And of course, we'll talk about how Skype for Business works on mobile devices, as well. So, if you work for an organization that has a Skype for Business deployment set up, this is your path to learn how to use that system. Let's get started.
