Skype for Business merges the best of Lync and the best of Skype into an easy-to-use and versatile communication tool that integrates seamlessly with email for text messages and file sharing. Skype for Business is also robust enough for videoconferencing, desktop sharing and online collaboration.
Available to both students and staff through their Office 365 subscription, Skype for Business integrates seamlessly with email, Microsoft Office, calendar and the ECU address book to allow instant text messages, video conferences, online presentations and even group conferencing. Skype for Business allows true collaborative desktop sharing among attendees for quick project edits and live brainstorming. Over the summer 2016, we will transition ECU computers from Lync 2013 to Skype. For now, Skype and Lync may be used interchangeably.
