Skype for Business is now Technology and Information Services’ (TIS) preferred tool for webinars.
Skype for Business can transmit audio, webcam video, a screen presentation such as PowerPoint, and interactive elements, such as a poll. The software is suitable for up to 250 attendees and is available to all University staff and students.
You can set up a Skype for Business webinar from within your Outlook Calendar. The resultant link can be sent automatically to potential attendees (internal or external), or copied and pasted into an email at a later date. Once it is set up, you can prepare your webinar by preloading any content in advance.
To learn how to use Skype for Business, either book a place on a Skype for Business training course or refer to our online help page.
