Let me start by just saying that Michael and I have been working together for about 4 months now, however our desks are half a room apart and yet we have still managed to work well together, I believe that this is because of Lync. Microsoft Lync is included in all Microsoft Office 365 packages and allows users to IM each other, however, it is so much more than that. Michael and I use it to work together all day every day, constantly discussing our findings, sharing program control, sending monitor views and links to each other, we don’t need to get up and go to each others computer each and every time we find something new, Lync saves us a lot of time and effort.

I believe that Microsoft Lync will be an extremely useful too for the university in the future allowing staff and students to communicate with one another making communication within the University much more fluid.
