This two hour workshop will demonstrate how easy it is to set up and attend an online meeting using Lync 2013. Meeting schedulers will learn how to escalate an instant message or phone conversation into an audio or video conference; schedule an online meeting in Outlook 2010 or 2013 using default options; customize advanced meeting options for unique meeting requirements; how to create a recording of a meeting; and schedule a meeting on behalf of another. Different meeting roles (attendee versus presenter) will be discussed; and we will learn how to use a virtual waiting room known as a “lobby” for control over who attends a meeting. In addition, we’ll spend a few minutes looking at the new expanded meeting controls including the Share menu which gives you access to all presentable content in one place, such as Desktop, PowerPoint presentations, Poll, Whiteboard, and OneNote. We’ll look at the new meeting layouts for different types of meetings. We will learn about Lync Web App which allows PC and Mac users to join a Lync Meeting from within a web browser while delivering a full Lync Meeting experience. Finally, the use of Lync Mobile clients will be discussed.
Prerequisite: An activated Lync account is required (visit go.illinois.edu/myuc to check account status before attending)
