Skype is Retiring

Microsoft recently announced their plans for discontinuing Skype for Business. Additionally, Microsoft Teams was announced as the replacement and expansion of Skype.

Teams is available to faculty and staff on university-managed computers. The Teams platform offers robust chat and collaboration features and integrates well with the other Office 365 products (Outlook, SharePoint, etc.). UWM will be retiring Skype for Business on January 7, 2020. 

If you are currently using Skype for Business and would like more information about migrating to Teams, LinkedIn Learning has a course entitled Moving from Skype to Business to Teams.
