A short post today to offer assistance with Microsoft products. The links included in this post are resources for free ebooks from Microsoft and then a Microsoft Lync help page which is an Instant Messenger (IM) tool that we use here at Washburn.
A collection of free Microsoft ebooks is available from Eric Ligman, Microsoft Senior Sales Excellence Manager, with information ranging from Office 2013 to Microsoft operating systems. This is a quick helpful link to a variety of free documents Microsoft provided.
Largest Collection of Free Microsoft eBooks ever, including: Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Office 2013, Office 365, Office 2010, SharePoint 2013, Dynamics CRM, PowerShell, Exchange Server, Lync 2013, System Center, etc.
The other helpful web site is one for Microsoft Lync. As mentioned, Lync is an Instant Messenger (IM) that is available to faculty, staff, and students to use here at Washburn. Many departments are already using Lync to communicate with one another, other departments, or with students. It is a quick and easy way to talk with a group of people or conduct a video conference call with a group too.
A list of help topics is available from the Microsoft web site listed below. Lync is already installed on all Washburn computers (Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office 2013 > Microsoft Lync 2013). It is possible to install Lync on your home PC or Mac and it can also be installed on your mobile device too.
Have a good day and please let us know if there are any items that you would like for us to post about in the future. Thanks to Donna LaLonde for providing these helpful links following training that we provided over the summer.
If there are any questions about using Lync, or the items on the ebooks, please contact ITS Support at 785-670-3000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
