Lync is a fantastic tool to use in education, with its many opportunities to improve communication in schools, colleges and universities. So we’re really pleased to tell you about our microsite, which is all about Lync being used in education.
The site includes lots of interesting information with a video about how The Open University have deployed Lync and and benefited from it. In the video, staff at The OU talk about ways that they have used Lync to improve communication and collaboration within their organisation, for example replacing their ageing telephony system with the tool.
You can also find written case studies available to download on the site including one from The University of the West of England, Bristol. The case study explains how UWE reduced costs by 25 percent and increased efficiency by using Lync.
There are some useful links on the site to further information about Lync, as well as links to university blogs.
