Description

One of the fastest growing methods for communicating and collaborating is through online meetings. By eliminating the time and cost of travel, online meetings can potentially be much more effective than in-person meetings. Separating lengthy meetings into shorter sessions allows time to address issues in between. Also, digital information, files, documents, websites and more can be shared with the remote meeting participants. Record the meeting for future playback or share with people not able to attend the meeting. If you have Office 365, you owe it to yourself and your organization to learn how to use teams for online meetings. After all, you are already paying for the service. Many organizations will tell you that the online meeting feature itself is worth the entire Office 365 subscription fee. Attend this course to learn why. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
