Skype for Business

NOTE! The College will switch to using only Microsoft Teams as of January 2021, as Microsoft will terminate the Skype for Business Online service. Please begin using Teams for meetings and chat now to become familiar with it. Skype for Business will remain an option through Fall 2020, but the two services work independently.

Skype for Business is the instant messaging software developed by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Office 365 Services. Skype for Business is an easy-to-use interface that allows individuals to communicate through text chat, voice calls, video calls and online meetings. You can use Skype for Business from nearly any computer or mobile device, on campus or anywhere in the world you have Internet access.

What you can do with Skype for Business:

  • Skype with colleagues inside and outside of the College.
  • Hold and schedule online meetings where you can share your desktop or a program, add attachments, and collaborate.

  • Connect to Skype for Business from anywhere! Use your desktop Skype for Business client, Outlook on the Web, or mobile device app to chat and join meetings.
