Note: This online meeting will be recorded for the purpose of sharing the results with anyone who is interested in the performance of Lync Online meetings.


My goal is the same; to run an informal, open-to-anyone Lync Online meeting with 250 attendees:

  • Joining from a range of devices, browsers and platforms,
  • Running video, a presentation, shared OneNote notebook and polls.
  • Hold an open discussion to find some answers to some pressing questions about Lync Online meetings.

We will review and apply some of the lessons we learned from the first meeting.

Fewer presenters

Defined sections in the meeting for video conferencing / presentation / collaboration and NoteBoarding (white-boarding with OneNote)

We will compare the two meetings and discuss whether the experience has improved. We will also look at some new topics

  • The Lync Online meeting invite
  • Uploaded and shared PowerPoint vs PowerPoint via shared desktop
