Chat, call, and videoconference with ease using Microsoft’s business communication app


Skype for Business is an incredibly powerful communication tool, used for everything from simple chat conversations to webinars for 10,0000 people, and can even replace a business’s phone system.


Topics covered include:

  • Using the Skype for Business app to start a chat session
  • Starting audio and video calls using Skype for Business
  • Sharing an interactive whiteboard
  • Setting your presence indicator and personal message
  • Using the Office 365 web interface for simple chat and presence functions


For a more detailed look at many other features in Skype for Business (previously called Microsoft Lync), we recommend “Microsoft Lync Essentials” – despite the name change most features work the same.


Filmed in Bigger Brains’ “Uniquely Engaging” TM style and taught by 25-year IT veteran and Microsoft cloud partner, Chip Reaves, Skype for Business Essentials is part of Bigger Brains’ “Mastering Office 365” course.
