This half-day course covers the essentials of using Lync 2010 for business. You will be taught information how to initiate and answer Lync voice calls, how to engage in instant messaging with colleagues, and how to set up, conduct and participate in online meetings.
After completing this course, students will have been taught information how to:
This course is designed for business professionals who need to quickly learn the common features of Lync 2010. It is also suited for individuals who have used Office Communicator 2007 but are migrating to the latest version - Lync 2010.
Before attending this course, students should be familiar with using personal computers and have experience using a mouse and keyboard. They should also be comfortable with the Windows environment as Windows 7 is used in the classroom. Background in any of the following is also helpful but not required: Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010, Outlook Web Access or Outlook Web App, Office Communicator 2007, instant messaging, online meetings, or softphone usage.
Module 1: Lync 2010 Introduction and Instant Messaging
Before you can exploit its power, you first need to get comfortable with the Lync interface. The first module will teach you how to use the interface as you learn how to search for, organize, and use your personal contacts. You will also learn the concept of presence, which gives you the immediate status of a colleague's availability for a conversation. This allows you to accurately time your conversations instead of guessing whether or not the recipient is online. This module will also teach you how to effectively communicate with instant messaging (IM). IM is a text-only communication method used for quick discussions or questions. It is a popular tool because it is usually very fast, does not have file size limitations (unlike email which usually does), and through the use of presence, you always knows if the recipient is available. You will also see that Lync helps you effortlessly maintain a history of all of your IM chats by automatically placing them into your email system and making them visible through Outlook.
Module 2: Conferencing
The second module teaches you how to leverage Lync's conferencing abilities to allow participants to join a meeting using the audio of their computer or phone. The conference can either be pre-scheduled or a spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment meeting. Conferencing can be audio-only or integrate more dynamic features such as allowing presenters to display their computer's desktop, show PowerPoint slides, and survey participants through the use of visual polling questions. Complex ideas can be diagrammed with a built-in whiteboard application, the results of which can be saved by all attendees. With visual aids, communication can be more concise and accurate. In addition, conferences can even be recorded for future playback. You will also learn that attendees can join a meeting - even without having Lync 2010 installed - by using Lync Attendee or Lync Web App.
Module 3: Voice
The last module demonstrates how to use Lync as a traditional telephone replacement. Using your computer's speakers or a headset, you can dial in and speak with your colleagues, leave voice mails, and transfer calls to another number. You can use Lync to dial 911 and have emergency personnel directed to your exact physical location. However, Lync is more than just a telephone replacement. You can also add audio to an instant message, spontaneously add other colleagues to the audio conference call, and then turn that conference call into a full-featured meeting - complete with PowerPoint slides and desktop sharing. Finally, you will learn that Lync natively understands most webcams and allows you to make video calls or add video to an existing audio.
