Online Presentations

Webinars, Conference Calls and Online Meetings

It's perfect for both small gatherings like student groups or committee work, and for large groups like online learning, training webinars, and hybrid or online courses. 

Share and Collaborate

Presenters can share their desktop and programs to the audience and grant others control on what is being broadcasted.  Participants may request control of the broadcast or be granted by the presenter the role to share their desktop.  This allows users to work collaboratively on files to get work done remotely or to show someone how to do something on their computer.

Record Sessions

All online meetings can be recorded and downloaded as MP4 files with the Skype for Business Recording Manager.  MP4 files are high quality files that can be edited in any video editing tool and can be uploaded on to Youtube, websites or course sites.

Reach Large Audiences

Allows up to 250 participants and works well for small ad hoc meetings. It's secure enough for confidential meetings, easy to use for student group work, large lectures and town hall virtual meetings.


Secure for High-Level Team Collaboration and Discussion

Online meetings can be locked-down for invitation-only, confidential meetings.

Skype for Business is HIPAA, BAA, FERPA and Export Control compliant.
