Skype for Business is a video collaboration app available to the UTSA community that solves a variety of distance communication needs through its videoconferencing, recording, and sharing capabilities. Skype can be used on or off campus to host voice calls or video meetings and record lectures or presentations. Users can share desktops, programs, and files within a conversation as well as write directly on the built-in Whiteboard with ease. For a full explanation of Skype and comprehensive instructions on getting started, customizing settings, recording, meeting, and more explore the Skype for Business Tutorial.
Please note: The Skype feature for calls to phone numbers is not activated for UTSA at this time.
