"Microsoft Lync - which runs on Marquette University's servers - will allow for a single program to run our online meetings and instant messaging," Dr. Krause added. "As meeting organizers, we will now be able to control who gets access remotely to our AIM investment meetings. In other words, guests to our AIM meetings can include those attending in person and those who connect across the web from anywhere in the world."
"Dr. Krause said, "In a nutshell here's what Microsoft Lync will allow us to do from within the AIM Room:
- Share our desktop or a program. This will allow individual or group editing and teaching sessions.
- Show slides. Add a PowerPoint or Excel presentation to our AIM meetings.
- Write on a whiteboard. Take notes or diagram ideas.
- Send files. Make handouts available to participants or quickly send documents to one person or all guests.
- Send and receive video. See AIM student presenters and guests at their desks - and with our panoramic camera, the guests can see everyone in the AIM Room.
- Record and play back meetings. If a student misses an AIM meeting it will be possible for them to see it later in its entirety using a browser plug-in."
