Skype for Business available to all UO staff


Skype for Business is now available to all University of Oregon faculty and staff.

Skype is an audio- and videoconferencing application from Microsoft that also offers instant messaging, screen sharing, and other collaboration features, including seamless meeting scheduling through Microsoft Outlook.

Skype has some limitations. It's not meant to be a replacement for the telephone system in that it will not have the capability to dial 911 or the UO Police Department because it does not connect to the public telephone network.
