Microsoft Lync

Microsoft Lync is a communication tool that allows users to collaborate in real-time via text chat, audio/video chat, and desktop sharing. Students will use the Web App for Lync 2013 to join Lync sessions. The Web App is fully featured, and is compatible with Mac and Windows computers.

This will eliminate potential echoing and feedback and improve your audio experience.
