Skype in Technology-Enhanced Classrooms

Do you plan to communicate during your class with someone outside of your FSU Technology-Enhanced Classroom (TEC) this school year? The regular version of Skype for Desktop is available on all TEC PCs and MACs at FSU allowing you to do videoconferencing to an off-campus site that also has Skype. At any TEC PC just click the Microsoft icon in the lower left corner of the desktop and then scroll to the right until you find Skype for Desktop. Skype is also available on the Macintosh Dock or in the Applications folder.

Faculty and their departments must provide their own webcam and microphone for off-campus communications with Skype. Any plug-and-play camera works best. Support from Microsoft is available here.

Skype for Business 2015 (formerly Microsoft Lync) is available for on-campus communications between FSU offices. The full description is here.
