Skype for Business Training Sessions Coming Up

Skype for Business is now available to University faculty, staff, and students.

As a reminder, the University’s Fuze web conferencing tool will be discontinued on Tuesday, July 31 when the vendor stops support of SLU’s version of their application.

Information Technology Services (ITS) is encouraging the SLU community to download any saved Fuze recordings that an individual wishes to keep before accounts expire. The download process can take some time and can be limited to up to three per day, so users are encouraged to start the process now. Download instructions are available here.
