Skype_for_Business
With the Skype for Business, Deakin staff have the ability to introduce virtual guest speakers into the lecture theatre/classroom.

All you need to do is:

  • Open Skype for Business on your laptop (all Deakin computers have it pre-installed), you will need to connect your laptop in the lecture theatre/classroom where you are presenting. Contact eSolutions if you have trouble accessing Skype for Business
  • You can either create a meeting invite on the day of the invite or create a calendar Skype for Business meeting invite, this will depend on whether the guest presenter has access to a Deakin account.  If the presenter doesn’t have a Deakin account then you will need to setup a calendar invite and send the meeting link to the presenter.
  • You might like to have a webcam pointed at the audience, most laptops have an internal webcam built in which you can use.
  • Setup your laptop at the lectern, if you are unfamiliar with using the audio visual equipment in the classroom eSolutions have an orientation training video you can access.
  • Once setup, open your meeting and invite the guest presenter to join the meeting. Setup your audio/video so students can see and hear the guest presenter.

Make sure you test using Skype for Business with your guest presenter before going to your lecture/class.  Learning Innovations staff can assist with this testing.
