This new short course demonstrates how easy it is to set up and attend an online meeting using Lync 2010. 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 using default options; customize advanced meeting options for unique meeting requirements; and schedule a meeting on behalf of another. Different meeting roles (attendee versus presenter) will be discussed; we will learn how to use a virtual waiting room known as a 'lobby' for control over who attends a meeting; explore settings for audio participation only (for those attendees who do not have Lync installed); how to set up meeting tools (whiteboards, desktop, document, and application sharing); and how to create a recording of the meeting. Attendees will also learn how to join a scheduled meeting as an invited participant. This course is offered at no cost to faculty, staff and graduate students.
