Let's start off by taking a look at the types of conferences supported by Microsoft Lync Server. At CarvedRock Fitness, we use conferencing extensively, and with all of the various modalities of communication supported by Lync Server 2013, we're excited to get the product rolled out.

Planning End-user Training for Lync Client Features
Greetings, and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching Planning End-user Training for Lync Client Features. The materials covered within this lesson maps to the core solutions of Microsoft Lync Server 2013, Planning End-user Training for Lync Client Features. So the focus of this lesson is going to be on how to train the clients at CarvedRock Fitness, not on how to use all the features. With thousands of clients located in different physical locations, this is going to be a big undertaking, so we're going to be taking a look at some of the tools available to us for training our clients on features such as Enterprise Voice and Persistent Chat. We're also going to take a look at conferencing, whether we're managing a conference or participating in a conference with different types of clients such as the Lync Mobile App, Lync Phone Edition or the Lync Web Application. While designing the end-user training at CarvedRock Fitness, we know that we have a challenge on our hands because of the diversity of clients that we have out there and all of the new features that we have with our Lync Server 2013 client. Lync Server 2013 now supports some new features, for example, clients can now connect into a meeting using a web browser with integrated audio and video built-in, whereas with the older version of Lync Server 2010 we had to download an Attendee client to be able to gain access to the audio and video. The web client didn't support this. Some of the other features that we have are new meeting space options, expanded meeting controls, being able to play video and PowerPoint presentations. You can change your meeting views including a new view called Gallery View. There's a feature called Tabbed Conversations, and we can share notes inside of One Note. Let's take a look at some of these features in more depth.
